Asif, how does it feel to win this award?

It is such an honor for me to be a Killam Doctoral Scholar, and I am very grateful for the support. My spouse and children were able to join me for the Killam Laureates ceremony, which was held on campus October 20th, 2015. It was certainly a moment to cherish with family and celebrate achievements!
