Speakers Bios

Dr. Jannik Eikenaar teaches Communication in the School of Engineering at the Okanagan campus of the University of British Columbia. He received his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia through interdisciplinary research focused on the influence of an author’s persona to the understanding of their literary works. Jannik is an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Advisor in the School of Engineering and an active member of several UBC committees, including the Okanagan Senate and Aboriginal Initiatives Committees.


Dr. Firas Moosvi is a Lecturer in the Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, and Statistics department at the University of British Columbia Okanagan. He received his PhD in Physics from the Reinsberg lab in 2019 where among other things, he developed a new MRI technique to assess the oxygenation status of tumours using independent component analysis (ICA). During his PhD, Firas became interested in data science, learning analytics, and science communication and that led him to learn more about statistical techniques such as ICA and data visualization using interactive dashboards.


Stuart Mackinnon is an educational program design professional who is currently the Lab Program Manager for the Department of Earth, Environmental and Geographic Sciences at UBC’s Okanagan Campus. Within this role, Stuart is responsible for the laboratory curriculum and instruction of first-year physical geography and earth and environmental science courses.
