Introducing the principle study site, the Bayano Watershed, of Bridge21 Scholar, Gabriel Yahya Haage.
I am Gabriel Yahya Haage, a graduate student in the Natural Resource Sciences department at McGill. I am involved with the BESS (Biodiversity, Ecosystem Services and Sustainability) and the E4A (Economics for the Anthropocene) programs. My research at Bridge21 deals with the Water Poverty Index and the needs of children.
My research investigates cities as a physical manifestation of the joint evolution of human communities and technology; drawing from case studies, history, and economics to understand and explain how anonymous interdependence emerged and on what trajectory it might propel humanity.
I am a general practitioner and epidemiologist from Colombia and currently, I am a PhD candidate in Family Medicine at McGill. I am currently interested in using game jams to train medical students and family medicine residents in cultural safety. Game jams are participatory events in which groups of ‘jammers’ create and play games in a time-constrained environment.
My name is Mathilde Papillon and I am a U1 honours physics student who loves to dance. Here is a little bit about my research project!
In physics, the Lagrangian is this wonderful quantity that, by simple subtraction of kinetic and potential energy, can tell us everything we need to know about the motion of a system
We know that creativity and art therapy plays an integral role in the healing of patients with the most dismal of diagnoses such as cancer. What I hope to answer through this fellowship is: can we use creativity to foster empathy, both towards our patients and ourselves, and prevent and address physician burnout?
Exploring the Intersection of Nursing and Artificial Intelligence. At Building 21, I want to explore the question, “What can nursing scientists learn from AI researchers, and vice versa?”
an unconventional space for unconventional ideas
Building 21 is an experiment in new, innovative, and beautiful ways to approach the university experience—an open lab where curious minds from all levels and disciplines are invited to come together to collaborate, to think, and to dream outside the traditional confines of their areas of study and expertise.
