Maryam is a doctoral student at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability working with Dr. Hadi Dowlatabadi. Her work focuses on households and communities that face higher burdens in accessing energy services -like heating- that enable the creation of healthy and comfortable homes. She primarily works with First Nations and remote-First Nations communities in BC on characterizing and addressing some of the challenges associated with household and community-level energy poverty.
