I come from Toronto, Canada where I completed my undergraduate studies in the Engineering Science program at the University of Toronto, majoring in Energy Systems Engineering. My undergraduate thesis focused on the development of an energy systems design tool for remote off-grid communities. I am currently pursuing a Master of Science in the Technology and Policy Program at MIT. My research at the LAE is focused on the life cycle analysis of petroleum jet fuel, and predicting the impact of future fuel use and emissions on the environment.
