Stephanie Whitney brings partnership development expertise to the Faculty of Math’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship office

This past summer the Faculty of Mathematics was excited to welcome Stephanie Whitney as Director of Research and Innovation Partnerships. She will help raise research profiles, initiate and develop industry and government relationships and secure funding to support student entrepreneurship. Stephanie has a PhD in Social and Ecological Sustainability (2018), Masters in Environment and Business (2013) and a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Environmental Engineering with an option in Management Science (2004).  

Over her career, Stephanie has strived to forge and maintain strong relationships with representatives from federal, provincial, and municipal governments along with private and public stakeholders in applied research projects. She hopes to bring this experience to the Faculty of Mathematics by helping support student entrepreneurship and with new exciting projects such as the capital project for the new M4 building. Her door is always open as Stephanie is excited to connect with faculty, students, and partners who want to learn more and start a collaborative relationship to see where it takes them.
