Catalytics Research Division is proud to congratulate two of our student trainees, Queenie Zeng and Emily Ham, on winning 3rd place at STEM Fellowship Indicium Research Competition on Saturday March 24, 2018.


Competing against 14 other teams, Queenie and Emily presented their research on predictive modelling techniques on Hamilton Health Sciences’ high-cost users in front of a panel of renowned judges composed of accomplished professors from McMaster University and respected clinical scientist from Hamilton Health Sciences.


Started with zero research experience, Queenie and Emily worked breathlessly over 5 months under the mentorship of Ming and Alex. They conducted primary research on modelling techniques of high-cost users with data extracted from electronic health records. Their research findings lay the groundwork to enable early identification of high-cost users at Hamilton Health Sciences allowing earlier intervention and more informed medical resource planning.


Congratulations to Queenie and Emily!
