We are happy to share the following recent research accomplishments by SIM faculty:
From Dr. Mike Smit:
As previously announced, Mike Smit started a new role as Deputy Scientific Director for the Ocean Frontier Institute earlier this year. In that role, he helped lead a large, multi-institution proposal to the Canada First Research Excellence Fund, which aims to understand and transform the role of the ocean in assessing, mitigating, and adapting to climate change, and which includes a significant role for ocean data and information. Hopefully there’s good news on that proposal in our next newsletter! Mike has also participated in the Digital Twins of the Ocean Summit, a WMO initiative to better collect and share data on Greenhouse Gas emissions, the Polar Data Workshop, the joint Canada-EU ocean data partnership forum, and many other national and international conferences.
From Dr. Louise Spiteri:
Louise Spiteri is a co-applicant, together with other members of DefaultDal (https://defaultdal.ca/) on a SSHRC Partnership Development Grant for the project Fostering plant-based defaults in Canadian universities and colleges. Louise is continuing to work on another SSHRC-funded project that examines Scaling up trauma and violence: Informed outreach with women affected by violence.

- Three conference papers published as well, two in the Proceedings of the 2022 NeuroIS Retreat and one in the CONF-IRM 2022 Proceedings. We also have a forthcoming conference paper at HICSS 2023 this year. These papers are either related to remote work, mind wandering, or new educational technologies.
- I had the pleasure of hosting Anika Nissen, a PhD student from the University of Duisberg-Essen in Germany this summer. Together with Aaron Newman, we worked with Anika on a cool project related to the brain processing of social robots and artificial Instagram influencers. This paper is complete and under review.
- I was named a Data Champion by the Digital Research Alliance of Canada, which provided $49 998 to support research and teaching related to computational social science and digital humanities.
- We have multiple funded ongoing projects through Mitacs, largely to look into phenomena at the intersection of human-computer interaction and data mining.
- I have many other ongoing collaborations (some funded) related to identifying factors in motivation of public sector workers, brain-computer interfaces, and mind wandering, and YouTube videos.
- I had the pleasure of being featured as an emerging researcher (“Young Academic”) in the inaugural NeuroIS Society magazine, which was an honour!
