QSDT[edit | edit source]

The Queen's Solar Design Team is a multidisciplinary, student run team, that aims to advance the use of solar technologies through education and innovation. The team has a twenty year history in solar vehicle design but has recently transitioned to focus on low energy solar building design. The short term goal is to compete in the Solar Decathlon. I have helped to transition the team, and worked extensively on the 2011 Solar Decathlon proposal (described below).

Solar Decathlon 2011[edit | edit source]

Queen's and Carleton University have collaborated to submit a proposal to the 2011 Solar Decathlon. This design competition challenges students to design and build a net-surplus energy solar powered home. I have been involved in the proposal preparation and submittal and continue to work with the team to develop the conceptual design.

MECH 460/461[edit | edit source]

For my fourth year design project I developed a conceptual design for a small scale, solar driven, liquid desiccant air conditioning system. I am continuing to work further on the project by prototyping and testing a similar system as a research project in MECH 461.
