Introducing our new Faculty Member: Felicia Magpantay

Felicia Magpantay

January 26th, 2018

Queen’s has committed to hiring 200 new faculty members over the next five years. Meet Felicia Magpantay, one of the new members of our community.

Felicia Magpantay joined The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Queen’s University in the summer of 2017. Dr. Magpantay is one of the 41 new faculty hired in 2017-18 as part of the university’s faculty renewal plans and is the first in a series of profiles to sit down with the Gazette to talk about her experience so far and how she made it to Queen’s.

My PhD dissertation was on delay differential equations and numerical analysis. While completing my postdocs, I started working on mathematical biology – basically using mathematical tools to study biological problems.

Applied Math Student in Gold-Medal Winning Queen's Team

QGEM Team

November 24th, 2017

The Queen's Genetically Engineered Machine Team (QGEM) is a multidisciplinary undergraduate student team in synthetic biology. Students comprising this team study biology, biochemistry, life sciences, mathematics, engineering, and computer science. This past summer, QGEM worked to create a novel E. coli strain, with the capabilities to both bind to ice, and degrade hydrocarbons – a new method of Arctic oil spill remediation. Thus, this method works to combat hindrances and limitations surrounding the current methods of oil spill remediation.

Math and Engineering student Sarah Babbitt is a member of QGEM. She received funding support from the Department of Math and Statistics to travel to Boston, where QGEM had the opportunity to present their project at the International Genetically Engineered Machine Competition (iGEM) hosted by MIT, in early November. Here, QGEM received a highly coveted gold medal, based on innovative work, mathematic modelling, human practices, and the creation of new parts. Extensive mathematical modelling was completed to simulate the application of the E. coli strain in the environment, and ensure its practicality.

Congratulations to the team! You can read more about QGEM’s success in the Queen’s Journal. Please note the article wrongly states that Sarah is a Computer Science student; she is in fact in Math and Engineering. http://www.queensjournal.ca/story/2017-11-23/news/queens-students-win-gold-medal-for-research-in-synthetic-biology/
