Hey Everybody! My name is Paul Marchetta, and I am the President of the GSA for the 2021/2022 academic year. I’m a second year Master’s student in the Biology program. My current research focuses in the field of cancer studies, where I am examining the phenomenon of “senescence” in tumor cells. I’m relatively new to Sudbury, and I have enjoyed getting to know the city for all that makes it special. My goal is to do my part to help make Graduate Life at LU the best that it can be for all of us – I encourage you to reach out if you have any questions! I look forward to getting to meet all of you over the coming year!

Hi everyone, My name is Aponsah Shadrach Yaw. I am the VP Finance of the GSA for the 2021-2022 academic year. I am a masters student in natural resource engineering and my research focuses on open pit production scheduling. I am originally from Ghana, Africa and I particularly love the warm weather here in Sudbury :). I am super excited to meet/e-meet you all and welcome you to Laurentian and the GSA.
Hey everyone! My name is Monisah (pronounced like moe-nee-saa) and I’m the VP Communications of the GSA for 2021-2022. I’m currently doing my first year of my Masters in the Interdisciplinary Health program at Laurentian. My research focuses on Indigenous health in rural areas. I’m originally from Ottawa, and am still in Ottawa because of the pandemic. Outside of school, I love binge watching shows on Netflix, playing music, trying out different foods, and meeting new people! (I also love to travel, but that’s a bit difficult nowadays…). I’m super active on social media so feel free to reach out to me or the GSA account on Facebook and Instagram! Would love to virtually meet all of you 🙂
Hi everybody! I am Nasim and I am GSA Vice-President Events for 2021-2022 academic year. I am doing my Master’s in Chemical Engineering as a second year student. My thesis is in the field of Carbon capture using microalgae that have been found in abandoned and operating mines in Sudbury. Microalgae are just amazing because not only can they help to decrease green-house gasses emission to the atmosphere, but also they have the capability to produce biofuel and value-added food compounds. I am originally from Iran and like most Iranians, I love gatherings and greetings! So, I am here to organize fantastic events at LU and let the graduate students get familiar with each other. Your valuable suggestions are warmly welcome 🙂
