Meet the Team
2023 Development and Instructional Team
Hi! My name is Shuoyang Wang, and I am a student partner in the 2023 MacPRIME development team. I am passionate about the mathematical/theoretical perspective of physics & chemistry. Besides studying, I love long walks and bubble tea. :)
Hi! My name is Yasmin Yaacoub and I am one of the MacPRIME Developers and Instructors for 2023. This fall, I will be entering my third year of Mathematics and Statistics Co-op, with a specialization in statistics. In addition to working on MacPRIME, I am a Welcome Week coordinator for the Faculty of Science and an executive member of McMaster’s Students Cooking on a Budget (MSCB) club. I enjoy spending my free time baking, reading, going to the gym, playing soccer, and curating Spotify playlists for oddly specific moods. I cannot wait to meet you during MacPRIME this summer!
Hi everyone! My name is Fay Zheng, and I am in my 4th year of the Biology and Pharmacology Co-op program pursuing a minor in Mathematics. Some of my favourite math courses include MATH 1A03, STAT 2B03, MATH 3FM3, and MATH 3MB3. In my spare time, I love making arts and crafts, cooking, and baking. I am looking forward to exploring some math with you and helping you navigate through university life this summer :)
2022 Development and Instructional Team
I'm Jessie (she/her) and I'm a 4th year Math and stats student at Mac. I've always enjoyed teaching (particularly math and physics) and recently have been interested in finding more active and playful ways to learn. I'm in Montreal for the summer doing research remotely (MTL is great, you should definitely visit if you get the chance). I spend my days thrifting, reading in parks, dancing at festivals, making music and mathy art. Some things you can talk to me about: making art/animations with Desmos, music production (I use Logic but debating whether I should get Ableton), where to go for fun in Hamilton, or anything you're up to!
My name is Andrew (He/Him) and I recently graduated from McMaster's Mathematics and Statistics Co-op program. Over the course of my degree, I worked for 12 months as a Data Scientist with Canadian Tire's Sports Analytics team and 4 months as an Analyst with the Air Miles Digital Analytics team. I also had the opportunity to work as a tutor with the McMaster Science Society and a teaching assistant with Dr. Junkins. Looking back on my time at McMaster, I encourage students to put themselves out there, meet new people, and challenge themselves!
Hello everyone, my name is Hareshan (He/Him) and I just completed the iBioMed program (HESE specialization) at McMaster University. I have primarily taken courses in biomedical engineering (e.g. signals & systems, biomechanics, synthetic biology) and the health sciences such as anatomy and cell biology. During my spare time, I love watching stranger things, Shark Tank & medical dramas like Grey's Anatomy, biking, playing soccer, and listening to music. I had the privilege of being one of the instructors for the MacPrime program last summer and it was an amazing experience for myself and for the students. I will be starting my master's in Health Research Methodology this fall at McMaster.
