New COGS Program Coordinator

Hello world! My name is Candice and I am Katya’s successor – the new Cognitive Systems Program Coordinator. I graduated from UBC COGS in 2011 (I was in the Brain & Cognition stream in Arts) and have worked in vision science research, visual analytics pedagogy, and in a no-kill animal services agency over the last several years. Now I’m back at UBC to support the program that made me a better person and I hope to support you in your COGS journey 🙂

If you have questions, do not hesitate to send them over to and I’ll do my best to answer or point you to a better resource!
