Path to Physics Olympiad SEMINAR
Date: Saturday September 18th, 7:00-8:30 PM EST
UPDATE: Thank you to all who attended our webinar! If you were unable to attend, you may watch a recording of our panelists below or on our YouTube channel (Canadian Physics Society).
Our Path to Physics Olympiad Seminar is intended for high-school students interested in studying physics beyond the high-school level through competitions and olympiads. Our panel consists of numerous talented speakers, who all have excelled at national and international level physics competitions, such as the IPhO and IOAA.
The seminar will last approximately 90 minutes, with each panelist sharing their own experience, advice, and resources that have helped them throughout their journey in learning physics. At the end of the seminar, we will host a Q&A session where participants may ask more personalized questions. Register below!
Ethan Hu is an upcoming University of Pennsylvania student from the Toronto area in Canada. He often spends his time reading up on the latest scientific advancements or working on physics problems in front of a whiteboard. He represented Canada at the GeCAA 2020, scored first in Canada in Physics Bowl Division 1, Top Gold in BPHO, and was a finalist in the physics team selection of 2019. His favourite subject is mechanics. In his leisure time, you may find him answering physics questions online, playing music, working out, or tinkering with remote controlled toys.
Stephen Liu is currently a software engineer at Seven Eight Capital, a hedge fund in New York. During his time at Bayview Secondary School, he enjoyed and organized math and physics contests, as well as qualifying for the AIME and CMO. He represented Canada at the International Physics Olympiad in 2015 and 2016, earning two bronze medals, and went on to study computer science at Princeton University. In his free time, Stephen is learning to box and play the guitar.
Jack is an international medalist, and an A.B. Duke scholar at Duke university, majoring in math+CS and physics. He represented Canada at the International Physics Olympiad (IPhO) 3 times, winning 2 bronze medals and 1 silver medal. He even qualified for the IPhO team in Grade 9! Furthermore, he has also represented Canada at the International Olympiad of Astronomy and Astrophysics (IOAA). He enjoys parties in his free time.
Eric Myzelev is a student at the University of Pennsylvania planning to major in math or mathematical economics. Among other accomplishments, he represented Canada and won gold at the International Economics Olympiad. Eric also won bronze at the Global e-Competition of Astronomy and Astrophysics and represented Canada at the International Olympiad of Astronomy and Astrophysics twice, in Beijing and in Budapest.
