sara macphee- director of student life

I started at Dalhousie in 2015, hoping to major in Biology. Science has always been my passion and growing up in Ottawa I had lots of opportunities to explore the world around me in both nature and museums. Thanks to many interesting and engaging profs I quickly discovered even more about my passion for science once I started university and am now doing a combined honours in Biology and Biochemistry, with a certificate in Genetics. In addition to doing my honours studying tick genetics with Dr. Tatiana Rossolimo, I am very involved with the DalDance Society, and with the campus radio station, CKDU. As Director of Student Life, I look forward to engaging new and current students in the DSS and ensuring that every student feels welcome and represented in our society. Please feel free to contact me at

sean wang - Director of communication

Hello everyone! My name is Sean Wang and I am a third year Medical Sciences student at Dalhousie University. Having served as the DSS Representative last year for the MedSci Society, I am delighted to join the DSS Executive as the Director of Communications. I believe science is collaborative and no one should be left unheard. Thus, this year I plan on streamlining communication between societies as well as the general science student body to further garner opinions, interests, and engagement for science-related events. Whenever I’m not busy during the school year, I enjoy jogging and biking (alas, not far), sightseeing (the Horseshoe Island Park is a must-see) and playing piano. If you have questions, I can be reached at
