Sustainable Energy Engineering master's student in the Faculty of Applied Sciences

Excited to contribute to climate change solutions! Equally excited to hang out with my dog!

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

Innovative solutions are required to combat climate change. Joining the Sustainable Energy Engineering department at SFU gave me the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people to tackle these difficult and complex problems.

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

My work, as a member of the ΔE+ research group, involves developing energy models to evaluate system level renewable energy transitions and support effective policy development.

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

Collaboration in the Sustainable Energy Engineering department is emphasized. This provides me the opportunity to continuously communicate with other graduate students in the department, and learn about climate change research outside of my focus.
