Spotlight on Research

Society is become ever-more dependent on the analysis of big data and its management. The game-changing computational technologies available at Western Science support intensive research efforts to leverage massive data sets and produce novel computational intensive modelling to address issues and develop applications for example, in finance, health and operations research in response to a rapidly evolving social, scientific and economic landscape. By encouraging an interdisciplinary research atmosphere, Western Science continues to bring academia, industry, and government together to model solutions to the challenges that are facing each sector.

Managing Wildfires

Each summer Canada's forests are threatened by fire hazards that are both natural and man-made. Discover how Western Science's Dr. Doug Woolford is working to provide several provincial governments decision-making tools to help mitigate this risk to society.

Meet Nathan Phelps, Western Science's first graduate in data science and a member of the Woolford lab for the summer of 2018.
