Sustainable Energy Engineering PhD student in the Faculty of Applied Science

February 17, 2021

I am a Ph.D. student in the school of Sustainable Energy Engineering (SEE) at SFU. My B.Sc and M.Sc degrees are in mechanical engineering. I am from a big family (2 brothers and 3 sisters). Generally, I have a problem-solving personality and always I try to be realistic and optimistic when I face difficulties in my life.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

My M.Sc's thesis was concerning Solid Oxide Fuel Cell and after graduation, I worked in a knowledge base company to strengthen my skills and learn more about real challenges. My tasks were related to wind turbines and also incineration power plants. After gaining 3 -years of industrial experience in sustainable energies, I decided to expand my knowledge in this field and I selected SFU because this university has one of the biggest groups in Fuel Cell technology (FCReL) in Canada. Besides, enrolling in a new school (SEE) can provide me more growth opportunities.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?

Fuel cells, as a pioneer in green technologies, generate electricity through thermo-electro chemical reactions between hydrogen and oxygen. I am working on a lifetime modeling of one of the important parts of PEM Fuel Cells.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

Vancouver is a pioneer in using hydrogen-based technologies in order to reduce greenhouse gases emission and it is so enjoyable for me to have a positive role in this plan through my research.
