Personal Statement

One of my favourite quotes is from a Barbara Ehrenreich's essay in the Time magazine titled Science, lies, and the ultimate Truth:

Through research we seek to know the ultimate other… the nameless Subject of so much that happens ... The most you could do was to arrange the experimental circumstances so as to entrap the elusive It and squeeze out some small confession: this is how the enzyme works, or the protein folds, or the gene makes known its message. But always, and no matter what, you let It do the talking. And when It spoke, which wasn’t often, your reward, as one of my professors used to say, was ‘to wake up screaming in the night-at the cunning of Its logic and the elegance of Its design.

As a CBA research associate working on the enhanCe project, I strive to contribute to science by uncovering the "cunning logic and elegant design" underlying the relationship between conscientiousness and student performance.
