Faculty and Staff

Graduate Officer

The graduate officer is responsible for ensuring that the regulations for the PhD degrees are met, approving chairs for examinations, ranking and recommending you for scholarships. The graduate officer is also responsible for the general conduct and operation of the graduate program.

You are welcome to approach the graduate officer at any time for clarification of rules or advice. In the rare instance of a disagreement between you and the supervisory committee, attempts at resolution should first be directed to a graduate officer.

Faculty

The proposed program is interdisciplinary with the distribution of participating faculty in both math and non-math departments, at approximately 50-50. It has a clear application focus and is collaboration and project oriented. There are currently 18 faculty members from the Department of Mathematics who have committed to this program. Other participating faculty are from five departments of the Faculty of Science, as well as the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies in the Faculty of Arts and the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics.

In most cases, students working on a specific application-oriented project will have two co-supervisors, one with expertise in mathematical and statistical sciences and the other with specialized expertise in the project-specific domain application involving modelling.
