In my fifth co-op work term, I have been assisting Professor Ignacio Barbeito in the Silviculture lab at UBC. As an Undergraduate Student Researcher in the Department of Forest Resources Management, I have been able to help with several projects. This includes a literature review, data management, and a spruce-weevil project. Being able to work in the field as well as in the office has given me many opportunities to develop both technical and transferable skills. I have learned about different data collection methods, data analysis, and how to approach different research projects. I look forward to continuing to develop my skills in this work-term and highly recommend co-op to explore and learn about all the different jobs in this field!
