Learning Strategist - Math Specialist
Jemisa Sadiku completed her B.Sc. and masters in Mathematics/Statistics with a minor in Biology .She is now a PhD candidate in mathematics and statistics at York University. During her M.A. studies, she worked on a survey paper that involved the spread of the HIV virus inside an organism. She also studied Lyme disease and its spread inside an organism. Jemisa presented two seminars: (1) Tick populations in wide geographical areas and the impact of climate change on the population, and (2) Different mathematical models that predicted the biological effect on how and why the elimination of Borrelia burgdoferi is almost impossible. Jemisa is currently working on two research papers that involves mathematical models for grooming behavior and also on deer migration to Canada and how that will impact the dynamics of tick population.
