McMaster University Team
Health Science, Year 4, McMaster University
Jessica Wang is currently a fourth-year undergraduate student in health sciences at McMaster University. Her research interests include virology, phages, Gastroenterology and synthetic biology. After being introduced to COBWEB in high school, she and her team have created a model on gut-bacteria and depression, as well as a model of antibiotic resistance spread.
Jessica is excited to introduce undergraduate and high school students to research and modelling complex systems in various fields. Through one-on-one mentorship and guidance, preparing lessons, and creating research teams, she hopes to help students learn the foundations of independent research from experimental planning to collaboration. She looks forward to supporting her team to not only apply the COBWEB software in innovative ways, but also to gain research skills to generate new knowledge in the future.
