President: Taylor Irvine
Hey! I’m a PhD student in the psychology department, studying the interaction between hormones and behaviour. When I’m not in lab, I like to stay active with yoga, hiking, and running the occasional marathon. I love the idea of building a community of graduate students where we can support each other during our studies. I am eager to bring you all of the exciting news about our upcoming events throughout the year ahead!
Treasurer and Financial Director: Thanh Phung

Aside from lab work, I like to spend my time working out, experimenting with unique food combinations, and watching insect documentaries. I’m excited to be a part of UTMAGS and getting to know UTM’s graduate student community a little bit better!
