Student Profile: Milad Ebadi
Mechatronics System of Engineering doctoral student in the Faculty of Applied Sciences
I’m a second-year PhD student in the School of Mechatronics engineering. Though fluid mechanics is the focus of my work, my interests span a broad range of topics, from electronics to Persian poems. I received my BSc in Mechanical engineering from Shiraz University, an MSc from Sharif University of technology and now I’m in SFU to learn more!
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?
SFU has a great reputation in mechatronics, especially in multidisciplinary research. My research is interdisciplinary research between sustainability engineering and mechanical engineering.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?
My research is mainly focused on energy modelling and retrofit modelling of buildings to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission reduction to fight against climate change and lead our society toward sustainability.
WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?
Great research environment along with motivating faculties and the high technology research equipment to support students' research.
HAVE YOU BEEN THE RECIPIENT OF ANY MAJOR OR DONOR-FUNDED AWARDS? IF SO, PLEASE TELL US WHICH ONES AND A LITTLE ABOUT HOW THE AWARDS HAVE IMPACTED YOUR STUDIES AND/OR RESEARCH.
I had the pleasure to win the Special Graduate Entrance Scholarship, two graduate fellowships, The Ralph M. Howatt Family Graduate Scholarship, and one of the four scholars of the living lab programs toward sustainability.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PROGRAM/POSTDOC POSITION TO SOMEONE STILL SEARCHING FOR A PROGRAM OR POSTDOC POSITION?
SFU has the environment to research and evolve in different aspects.
