International Summer School for Young Physicists (ISSYP), Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (July 19-30, 2021):

*Selected as one of the top 40 students (approximately 4% acceptance rate) around the world (20 Canadians, 20 international) with full financial aid

*The two-week-long prestigious ISSYP research program is for rising seniors who exemplify an outstanding passion for theoretical physics and math

*Attended core lectures and seminars, and studied quantum mechanics, special relativity, general relativity, superstring theory, dark matter, cosmology, black holes, etc, in nuclear and particle physics under leading physicists from the Perimeter Institute

*Did a project on the applications of ‘Bell’s Theorem’, how locality breaks down at quantum level under the mentorship of Research Scientist Elie Wolfe

*Learnt about the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory Laboratory (SNOLAB); attended an incredible lecture session on quantum computing with Prof Raymond Laflamme from the Institute for Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo; first-hand experience of what it is like to be a physicist
