Tech Fund Representatives

Tristan Smyth (Upper Year Tech Fund Representative)

Despite a BA in English Honours, Tristan has (happily) never read a book in the past three years, instead devoting his time to copious hours of television. A relocated Albertan, this is Tristan's second year in the MI program with a concentration is in Critical Information Policy Studies and Thesis. Feel free to chat with him about your experience at the iSchool and how to improve it, your thoughts on Toronto food culture, Albertan politics, or men's fashion.

Danielle Klein (Upper Year Tech Fund Representative)

Danielle is a MISC Tech Fund representative. She's also on the exec team of ACM. Danielle likes solving problems with technology, great user experiences, knitting, and many other things. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or ideas you'd like her to bring to MISC or Tech Fund, please don't hesitate to reach out by email or on twitter at @kleindaniellej.

Jaisie Sin (First Year Tech Fund Representative)

Jaisie Sin is a first year Master of Information student in the concentrations of Information Systems & Design and User Experience Design. She is a Faculty Council Representative and the First Year Tech Fund Representative. Her mission in the former is to ensure a strong student presence at Faculty Council Meetings and make sure student needs will be heard, while her objective in the latter is to bring to the iSchool the best student experience money can buy.

Jaisie hails from Toronto and earned an Honours BSc in Neuroscience and Computer Science from the University of Toronto. Her education is a reflection of her diverse interests, which include human-computer interaction, social psychology, security, social engineering, medicine, game design, artificial intelligence, and software development. When she has spare time, Jaisie enjoys experimenting with physics in video games, exploring fun weekend software projects, and dabbling in bullet journaling. Jaisie is also a member of the Web Team at the iSchool's chapter of the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM).

If you see Jaisie in the halls, please feel free to say hi and fill her in on your ideas on what event, workshop, or equipment the Tech Fund can fund next!
