I am a Mechanical and Materials Engineering student at Queen's University, graduating in 2010. My interests lie primarily in the area of sustainable development, particularly in consulting and strategic advice. I have been employed at Queen's University as a Research Assistant in Applied Sustainability and spent two summers at a major Canadian utility.

I will post useful information for users interested in applied sustainability and energy below. In addition, I have contributed significantly to two literature reviews, one about deployment of renewable energy technologies to mitigate climate change, and the other about the fascinating history of the (somewhat unfeasible) Energy Theory of Value.
