Congratulations to Everett Snieder (MASc student in my team) for winning the Water Environment Competition at WEFTEC 2017 in Chicago! Everett and his teammates redesigned Exhibition Place in Toronto using a combination of Low Impact Development techniques (e.g. green roofs and bioswales) to reduce the flood risk. Results from his award winning design demonstrate the need […]
Had an excellent time in Prague last month - I was visiting to present my work at the IWA/IAHR International Conference on Urban Drainage . Here is a link to my presentation. And a photo of me impressed with their hydraulic infrastructure!
I was recently interviewed by Global News to discuss the floods in Houston. Click here for the clip.
Congratulations to Nicole and Hasma for winning the Student's Choice for Best Poster Award at the 2017 Lassonde Undergraduate Summer Research Conference! Both Nicole and Hasma have been working with my team this summer as part of Lassonde's inaugural Women In Engineering internship program! Some photos from the event are attached below:
A short blog post on Lassonde's medium page discussing the concept of sponge cities - could it work in the Toronto Islands?
I am very excited to welcome Sahereh Kaykhosravi to the team. Sahereh is PhD candidate (co-supervised with Dr M Jadidi, Geomatics). Her research will focus on using Low Impact Development technologies to help mitigate floods in urban areas. Welcome Sahereh!
I am very happy to announce that: Daliah (winner of the Dr James Wu Research Internship for Undergraduate Engineering Students), and Rahma (winner of a Lassonde Undergraduate Research Award) have joined my research lab for the summer. They will be researching methods for improved flood prediction, analysing global water […]
I published a paper in the journal Water entitled "Optimising Fuzzy Neural Network Architecture for Dissolved Oxygen Prediction and Risk Analysis". More information here and free access to the paper here!
I was in Vancouver earlier this month to present some new research! PDF of slide deck is attached. Also, hung out with Drs Krol & Palermo!
On May 11th and 12th, 2017 York University will host the 5th Ontario Climate Symposium. This year’s symposium holds special significance, given that it coincides with Canada’s 150th anniversary and follows ratification of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
