My name is Kate Kaminska

I am a Scientist

When I was 10 I wanted to be a Veterinarian – I always loved animals!

I am proud of Making a smooth transition from researching nanomaterials in an applied physics lab to employing scientific methods for evidence-based policy research and development in the public safety and security domain.

I work as a Scientific Advisor in Defence Research

The biggest obstacle I have faced is Becoming a Canadian! I came to Canada as a foreign student in 1996, and having grown up in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, I experienced some culture shock.

My advice to women is Go for it and be confident in your abilities! Women can excel in this field just as well as men can.
