Mitacs Globalink student contributes to cyber security research in Canada
As a student originally from the Universidade Federal Da Paraíba in Rio Tinto, Brazil, Kelson thought that coming to Canada for a research internship would be “a good chance to know a beautiful country” while learning about network security through research. He and his Globalink intern colleagues have certainly taken advantage of the opportunity by visiting national parks, exploring the city of Fredericton and even taking part in a few Mitacs Step workshops on effective communication and team work.
Kelson quickly knew that he wanted to come back to UNB for later studies, researching scholarships and admissions requirements with help from his professor. He plans to do his Masters and PhD in Canada, preferably at UNB with Professor Ghorbani through the Mitacs Globalink Graduate Fellowship. The experience he’s had in Fredericton has cultivated a love for Canada’s Atlantic coast: “The opportunity that Mitacs gives us to come here is the perfect way to fall in love with Canada, just like I have!”
Mitacs would like to thank Industry Canada, the Government of Alberta, the Government of British Columbia, the China Scholarship Council, le Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior of Brazil, the Ministry of Education Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, the National Autonomous University of Mexico and Sorbonne Universités for their support of Globalink.
