We are delighted to announce that Mackenzie Hamilton and Yue Chen have recently joined our team as Junior Data Science Specialists.
Mackenzie is currently working on multiple projects related to COVID-19, including a modelling project that assesses the impact of increased vaccine allocation to hotspot communities across Ontario, and others that focus on identifying risk factors associated with COVID-19 burden among marginalized populations.
Yue is currently working at the Respirology CF Research. She is co-supervised by Dr. Jane Batt and Dr. Sharmistha Mishra. Since joining the team in July 2021, Yue has been actively involved in the TB program to create rulesets for extracting interest information from unstructured medical records.
