SRSA Star – May

Jason Lo Hog Tian

Academic Director

I’m entering the third year of my PhD program at the Institute of Medical Science. My research examines how stigma impacts the health and wellbeing of people living with HIV. I’m excited to serve SRSA this year as Academic Director!

Abdelhakim (Hakim) Khellaf

Academic Director


This is what their teammates had to say about them “Jason and Hakim have done an excellent job with the workshops that began this month (Learning the Literature series). They are very enthusiastic and passionate about their work!”




What do you love most about SRSA?

I love the people at SRSA – getting to know and work with fellow grad students has been the best part.

What is your favourite book and why?

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. Hearing a story told from a dog’s perspective makes you think about what’s really important to you. I also like racing.

What are three things you would bring to Mars?

I assume we have all we need for survival. Seeds (for breeding), rats (also for breeding), and a camera. Clearly I’m a scientist at heart.



What do you love most about SRSA?

Awesome and dedicated teammates!

What is your favourite movie and why?

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. For the cast, story true to its source material, incredible music and overall atmosphere.

If you could take a three week vacation tomorrow to anywhere in the world where would you go and why?

Japan: culture, scenery, great people. 3 weeks might not be enough!
