Current research and/or projects
My interest in research started as a summer student working at the University of Alberta in the field of experimental heat transfer phenomena. That interest was broadened to advanced energy systems while doing my doctoral study at University of Waterloo with support from NRCan. Since graduation, it has been a privilege to work at CanmetENERGY Ottawa in a variety of subject areas, most recently being the director of the Clean Fossil Fuels Group on advancing technologies to enhance fossil fuel extraction and utilization in an environmentally responsible manner. I also have the opportunity to appreciate the international efforts in this area while representing Canada in the International IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Program and the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum.
