Angela Yu

McGill University
As a History of Science student at Oxford, I study how shifting social values inform the development of scientific and medical research, specifically at the intersections of race, gender and assisted reproductive technology. My MSc research at McGill University focused on the single-molecule dynamics of DNA replication. I also served as Equity & Diversity Commissioner for all post-graduate students, and was an executive member of the McGill chapter of Scientista, the largest network for university women in STEM across North America. My academics and activism aim to integrate critical social approaches within STEM fields and broader education through workshops, panels and institutional advocacy.
