Ayon Shahed

I am a graduate of the Masters of Engineering program at Queen's University with four years of experience in the field of solar energy. My studies focused on primarily on solar thermal systems, solar PV systems, policy development, data acquisition and instrumentation devices, energy modeling and sustainability in business practice. I have also acquired experience with feasibility studies analyzing both technical and financial viability of projects.

Currently I am working with Honeywell Building Solutions as an HVAC Designer, implementing building automation systems for that aim to drive energy savings and meet customer requirements.

Outside of my professional work, most of my time is dedicated to working with Engineers Without Borders (Canada). Currently I am working with the Toronto Professional Chapter as the VP of Marketing & Communications. Previous to this role, I co-lead Toronto's Run to End Poverty 2011.

Prior to university I attended schooling in both Canada and Bangladesh. I would like to work in the field of international development and utilize my skills to provide education, engineering and aid to underprivileged societies. I am specifically interested in capacity building, leadership development, labour initiatives and use of technology for empowerment.
