Class of 2019

Managing Editors of IMIJ – IMI Journal

May Lim and Jesse Hudecki are two junior students in the MScSM program and the co-creators of IMIJ, a journal for graduate students who study within the Institute for Management and Innovation. May and Jesse both approached their Program Coordinators with the hopes of writing and submitting articles at the graduate level, however they found there were limited opportunities for them to publish their work. As a result, May and Jesse decided to create a journal dedicated to publishing the work of students within IMI, allowing students the chance to write, translate knowledge, and bring the programs of IMI together. The journal will be published once this year, and has plans to be a bi-annual (one edition per semester) journal going forth. The theme of this journal is emerging technology, and will focus on the intersection of science and technology within each graduate program offered at IMI. This edition will be published in April and will be free to all students who wish to read it. 

The IMIJ staff consists of May and Jesse as the managing editors, 4 editors from MScSM and MBioTech, and 1 graphic designer. The staff is hoping to expand and recruit representatives from other departments, and are looking for submissions from individuals from any graduate IMI program. IMIJ will be accepting submissions until March 11th 2018.

A Bit About the Managing Editors

MayMay Lim is in her first year of the MScSM program, where she previously attended McGill University for International Development and Public Policy.  During her undergraduate degree, May worked for the school paper at McGill and developed her love of writing during this time. In particular, she enjoys likeminded individuals coming together to talk about current topics and issues.


JesseJesse Hudecki is also in his first year in the MScSM program, and graduated from Western with a degree in Commerce. Jesse appreciates research that applies to real life scenarios, and is interested in knowledge translation as it applies to disruptive technology and the intersection of research and business.
