It is with great pleasure to announce that BSc Graduate, Anmol Sharma, has received the Faculty of Science Dean’s Medal for 2021. Dr. Lucy Lee, Dean of the Faculty of Science, presented him with his medal earlier this month.
Anmol exceeded the criteria for the Dean’s medal with a GPA of 4.13, graduating from the Bachelor of Science degree with a Chemistry major and Biology minor. He has been top of his graduating class among chemistry majors and his diligence in his studies has placed him on the UFV Faculty of Science Dean’s list for seven out of his ten completed semesters.
In addition to his excellent GPA, Anmol has also been doing active research in Dr. Linus Chiang’s research program in inorganic chemistry over the past three years. His excellent research has allowed him to present his work as a UFV representative at the institutional level (UFV Research Day), regional level (BC Inorganic Discussion weekend), national level (Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition in 2019 and 2021), and internationally (Global Inorganic Discussion Virtual Poster Competition). Notably, Anmol was awarded a top undergraduate poster prize at the 2019 national Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition, highlighting his outstanding research progress and presentation skills.
Outside of the classroom and laboratory, he was heavily involved with UFV Campus Recreation where he had served as one of the organizers for the soccer intramural program since 2017. He and his co-organizers initiated the program from scratch and has now become one of the most popular activity on campus.
Anmol’s excellent overall academic record, particularly excelling in chemistry, persistence and resourcefulness as a researcher, and service to the university community makes him the perfect recipient of the 2021 Dean’s Medal in the Faculty of Science. ~ Dr. Linus Chiang
So, what’s next for Anmol? His goal is to continue onto Medical School at the University of British Columbia.
Congratulations Anmol! We wish you all the best on your next chapter! Be sure to keep us posted!
