Assistant Professor in Global and Civil Engineering, University of Toronto

I love applying the tools of engineering to analyze problems that matter. Much of my research invents new ways of managing and improving water supply systems in big cities around the world. But along the way, I’ve analyzed what some fun and far-fetched “what-if” scenarios, including “what if oil companies built 90,000 wind turbines?” I think the answer we found to that question has direct relevance to Canada’s current debates about climate policy.

I am currently an assistant professor in Global and Civil Engineering at the University of Toronto.
