Arshad Imrit

Research Data Scientist

Educational background

I obtained an Honours BSc (Biology) and later a MSc (Bioinformatics) from York University. During my masters I worked with honey bees, getting stung every summer because we were stealing their honey.

My past accomplishments

I worked as a junior data scientist in ecology, where I looked at the long-term effects of climate change on lake ice in the Northern Hemisphere, where our lake ice work has been recognized several times on the news.

When I feel most inspired

A few of my favourite things

Paddling, camping, race cars, parkour
