Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Avanced Energy Systems

It is well known that our economic and social developments are contingent on access to efficient and sustainable energy. My research group’s efforts in these areas have been in the development of novel and integrated energy systems as well as modeling and analysis of energy systems in general. My research group and collaborators have conducted research on several topics, including the following:

  • Analysis of renewable energy strategies for island nations and developing countries
  • Development of a clean methane production system
  • Strategies and analysis of integrated sustainable energy systems for transportation
  • Development of an integrated thermal energy system for applications in cold regions
  • Development and analysis of renewable hydrogen production options
  • Application of smart fluids for energy harvesting
  • Thermal hydraulics and the integration of the Cu-cl cycle for hydrogen production.
  • Design and development of synthetic natural gas reactors
