I really enjoyed collaborating with people from different backgrounds and being challenged to attack problems in new ways. Whether I was brainstorming an issue, or chatting about my project with someone in the hallway, I always loved when someone would look at one of our approaches and say, “Why is it done that way – has anyone ever tried to do it this way?” – the outside perspective helped me develop a deeper understanding of the problem and always kept me questioning!
Going back and forth between the Centre and another lab across the city to do training and data collection – especially in the winter!
When we were discussing initial designs for an EEG headset, we anticipated having to work with various head shapes and sizes, but I never really noticed how much head shape varied from person to person!
In the summer, I love heading outside for lunch or a break because it allows me to recharge and get in some sunlight. With that being said, the whole open space is very bright and enjoyable to come work in regardless of the season.
The people! In addition to their many talents and passion, I will miss being able to ask where is the best “_____” food in Toronto and getting amazing recommendations every time.
