Faculty in Residence

Vianey Leos Barajas

Vianey Leos Barajas is an Assistant Professor, jointly-appointed between the Department of Statistical Sciences and School of the Environment at the University of Toronto. 

She is primarily interested in working in the areas of ecological statistics, time series modeling, Bayesian statistics and, more recently, spatial modeling of environmental data. She is currently a faculty affiliate at the Vector Institute and a faculty member of the Centre for Global Change Science. Collaborative projects bring her joy, so while she is formally trained in mathematics and statistics, you’ll likely find her working closely with ecologists (especially those who work with sharks) on various projects.

Community Wellness Coordinator

The Community Wellness Coordinators coordinates and facilitate programs for all Chestnut residents so you’ll likely encounter them out and about in the community. They also work to help develop a wellness framework for the Chestnut Residence Life program and will regularly solicit feedback from the residence community on their experiences with health and wellness.
