 Meet Abh 

I’m a second year PhD candidate studying Parkinson’s Disease and other related brain stuff over at the Faculty of Health. When I’m not busy with research, you can find me either in the volleyball courts (more indoor than beach but I play both) in CIF or at the grad house, probably still busy with work.  

What is your go-to karaoke song? 

The best and my choice for go to karaoke song is dancing queen by ABBA (I’ll accept no other answers here as they’re all incorrect).  

Where is your go to lunch spot on or around campus? What do you order? 

I’ve been in Waterloo for a while and I’d say outside the grad house the best place to get lunch would be Shinwa in the plaza, go with cash for that sweet discount. 

If you were to choose your superpower, what would it be? 

Finally, if I had a superpower, I would probably choose flying or telekinesis. Both would be ideal to deal with Ontario traffic, I’d either fly out or move cars out of my way.
