Elise Woodward

Hey everyone, my name is Elise Woodward and I am a third-year Integrated Science student specializing in Physics. I am the general team manager for the CUPC organizers, and my tasks include a little bit of everything. I work in BioPhysics (MRI physics), but I love to read about astronomy and particle physics, as well as a tiny bit of quantum chemistry. I enjoy basically all of my undergrad physics/science classes (except maybe those long lab reports!). Fun fact, I teach ESL as my side job, I love to do Judo and to travel! I can’t wait to meet you all (virtually) at the 2020 CUPC conference.

Samantha Lambier

Hi all, my name is Samantha Lambier (but everyone calls me Sami). I am a third-year undergraduate student studying astrophysics at Western University. My official title is Executive of Internal Communications, but as with the rest of the CUPC team, I take part in many activities required to make this conference run smoothly! My research this past summer focused on exoplanetary detection, though my interests range from exoplanets to lunar missions to gravitational waves. Outside of academia, I am passionate about singing and acting, and have a great dane puppy whom I love! I hope everyone enjoys their CUPC 2020 experience!

Charlotte Smith-Perez

I’m a third year undergraduate student at Western University studying Integrated Science with an Honours Specialization in Physics. I’m interested in many fields within physics and within science in general and this past summer I got the opportunity to research the Iris nebula. I love to be outside, play guitar, play video games, paint, hang out with my cats, and cook. I am really looking forward to the conference this November and my cats and I hope to (virtually) see you all there!
