Jessica Shi

Research Data Scientist

Educational background

I have an Honours Bachelor of Science (Nutritional Science and Psychology) and Master of Public Health (Epidemiology) from the University of Toronto.

My past accomplishments

During my undergraduate studies, I did wet lab research to investigate nanoparticle-based drug delivery and effects of probiotics on bone growth. During my masters studies, I performed an interrupted time-series analysis using CIHI data in SAS, and documented R codes for a proposed machine learning methodology which would be applicable for future real-world survey datasets.

When I feel most inspired

I listen to people’s stories and walk in nature.

A few of my favourite things


Watching documentaries, films, anime
