The People Who Put the Team in TeamUP Science!



Our Team
Hello! My name is Daniel, and I’m in my final year of a computing sciences major, psychology minor degree. I was Director of the Computing Science Workshop last year, and I grew to love TeamUp Science so much that I applied to become president! There are tons of awesome workshops, competitions, and initiatives, so I’m looking forward to a fun and action-packed year! If you see me at any of the workshops or events, don’t hesitate to come say hi! Especially if you play Clash Royale!


Our Team
Hi! I’m Marissa and I'm currently in my second year of Biological Sciences. I have a passion for science and working with kids which is perfect because that’s exactly what YSIP is. I can’t wait to work together with TeamUp Science to provide cool science experiments for inner city junior high students! In my spare time I like petting cats, adventuring and eating good food.

VP Communication

Our Team
Hey! My name is Justin, and I'm an honours neuroscience student in the fourth and final year of my degree. My interests include dogs and... well, mostly dogs. I got involved with TeamUp in Grade 12 when I attended ISC, and I am really looking forward to my third great year as an executive member with this amazing organisation! If you have any questions about how you can get involved with us, I'm your guy!


Our Team
Hi! My name is Kim, I'm currently a Masters student in the Department of Medical Genetics. I research eyes, but I also have a history of ecological research focusing on the effects of tourists on juvenile green sea turtles. I have many various experiences in science involvement and education, and it is my passion and goal to spread the wonders of science out to the world. I believe that everyone should have an opportunity to understand the fundamentals of science and have fun with it, even if they don't choose to pursue it as the focus of their lives. In my free time I like to read, walk about, and pet other peoples' dogs.

VP External

Our Team
Hi, I’m Jaslyn and I’m in my first year of honours physiology. I first got involved with TeamUP Science as a Director of Public Outreach, and I loved the position so much that I applied to be VP External. You may have seen me before presenting at your school, and I look forward to trying to include as many students as possible in our events! I’ve always been extremely passionate about science and coming from a rural high school myself, I feel it is important that everyone is able to experience how fun science can be! In my spare time, I like to dance and drink tea!

VP Finance

Our Team
Hey! I'm Sofia, a second year accounting major. I started at TeamUP as a Finance Director and because I enjoyed the hands-on experience so much, I decided to take on the opportunity of becoming this year's VP Finance. I am super excited for the events we have in store and to see what accomplishments our team attains this year! When I'm not studying or updating financial spreadsheets, you can find me singing at local charity concerts, exploring the city, or walking my dog.

VP Events

Our Team
I am currently an undergraduate student majoring in biological sciences with a minor in economics. Outside of academics, I enjoy working with youth in areas of STEM to show them that no, science isn't just memorizing odd facts punctuated by the odd explosion in a chemistry lab. You can often find me reading the New York Times (I feel the Bern), learning how to make edible food, or rereading Harry Potter for the umpteenth time. I try to live life with the belief that one must always assume complete responsibility for present and future circumstances without complaint. However, when the line for Panda Express gets too long, I can’t help but mutter a few complaints under my breath.
