(Hons.) in Chemistry and Business Management Studies at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He then embarked on a six-year career as an international student recruiter and admissions officer at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology before moving to Canada.
Outside of academia, Bernard is passionate about photography, graphics design, food, and travel. He is also fascinated by languages, and is currently learning hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ (the language of the Musqueam people) in addition to teaching English, Mandarin Chinese, and Japanese on a part-time basis.
