Jemisa Sadiku

PhD Candidate


Jemisa completed her B.Sc. in mathematics with a minor biology in 2014 and she is now a PhD candidate in mathematics and statistics at York University. During her M.A. studies, she worked on a survey paper that involved the spread of the HIV virus inside an organism. She also studied Lyme disease and its spread inside an organism. Jemisa presented two seminars: (1) tick populations in wide geographical areas and the impact of climate change on the population, and (2) different mathematical models that predicted the biological effect on how and why the elimination of Borrelia burgdoferi is almost impossible.
