About the President:
Hello Ravens! Thanks for stopping by and checking out casg.ca. In case you don’t know me, my name is Andrew Kwai, and I’ll be your CASG President for the 2012-2013 academic year. I’m in my final year, studying chemistry with a concentration in nanotechnology and a minor in mathematics, and currently working in the Barry Lab doing research in atomic layer deposition (specifically with gold precursors).
This year, we’re looking to up our scholarship fund, promote more academic initiatives, and hold great events like TEDxCarletonU! If you ever need me, please send me an email or feel free to drop by 127B UC.
Hope you all enjoy your year as much as I will!
