I'm a second year MES student at Queen's University with a background in mechanical engineering and science, technology and society. While studying at Queen's I hope to indulge my passion for sustainability as it relates to both engineering and the social sciences. I am particularly interested in the policy surrounding environmental and green design as well as Canadian Northern issues, including energy, sovereignty and aboriginal issues.

Research Topic[edit | edit source]

I am currently completing a research project that focuses on reducing diesel dependency in Nunavut, Canada by exploring the introduction of renewable energy technologies (RETs).

Here is a link to my project: Renewable energy policy in the north
