Student Research Assistant

Melissa Kwan is a Global Resource Systems student with a focus on international trade and development in the region of Asia. Her research interests include the interconnections between Asia and Canada, history of Chinese diasporic communities in the world, and ethnic identity formation. As someone who grew up in both Vancouver and Hong Kong, Melissa feels blessed to have deep ties and interactions in both places and hopes to continue bridging the gap between these two cultures. In her free time, Melissa enjoys hiking in BC’s beautiful trails and travelling.
