By April 18, 2019No Comments

SFU PhD candidate Careesa Liu’s research focuses on relatively small areas of the brain, but her view of science and technology is much bigger.

A biomedical engineer, Liu is completing her PhD at the NeuroTech and ImageTech Labs, both clinically embedded core SFU research facilities near the Surrey campus. She is also working to turn young students from Surrey and beyond into science and technology innovators and give back to her community.

Recognized for her contributions to the medical field, Liu is also a nominee for a 2019 YWCA Women of Distinction Award in the research, sciences and technology category, alongside doctors and professors. Liu is being cited for her research in neuroimaging and neurotechnologies.

“It’s a great honour just to be considered,” says Liu.
