Past events

Alumni Weekend - Dean's Lecture (JUNE 4, 2022)

Christiane Lemieux, Associate Dean, Operations and Academic, discussed our efforts to build enthusiasm for math, computer science, and data science in larger, more diverse groups of prospective students and enhance data science education to develop a new generation of versatile, entrepreneurial, and ethical data scientists.

Maura R. Grossman, J.D., Ph.D., discussed how a clinical psychologist and lawyer ends up as a research professor in a school of computer science and her mission to teach data science, computer science, and software engineering students to move slower and break fewer things.

Data + Health (MAY 17, 2022)

How has the history and evolution of meaningful data changed health care — in Canada and across the globe? In this event, we explored the things we have — and haven't — learned about collecting health data, and how we might use it to make health a human right around the world.

Data + Climate (APRIL 26, 2022)

How do we use data to understand that our climate IS changing, and that humans are responsible?

In this event, we considered the use of different data streams (climate modelling, satellite and aircraft measurement and surface observation) in emerging climate science. We also explored how data and models are being used to develop solutions.

Annual Dean’s Lecture in Hong Kong & Pi Day Celebration (MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2022)

We celebrated Pi Day with an exclusive update and conversation about how the University of Waterloo is positioning itself to play an important role in meeting the world's current and future health challenges with the Faculty of Mathematics Dean Mark Giesbrecht and Cannada 150 Research Chair in Mathematical Biology and Medicine Anita Layton.
