I am a Concordian since my engineering undergraduate studies when I was in COOP and CIADI. I was a CIADI executive, a capstone team leader that won the Quebec engineering competition and a USRA winning research student. As an INDI master’s student, I was on Concordia’s senate, school of graduate studies’ council, teaching, learning and research engagement sustainability senate sub-committee, both the university’s and MIE committees on hazardous materials, CREPEC student committee and GSA council. As Concordia’s representative in CREPEC, I won its bet to host the first CREPEC student conference and led its organization. Concordia welcomed 120 students from across Quebec in that conference. Via MIE hazardous materials committee, I proposed and led designing a comprehensive hands-on chemical
safety training that got filled in a week. Alongside MIE department, we established a machining workshop and an online booking system to provide research students with manufacturing support. I advocate student-led education. My priority is reforming Concordia co-curricular record to ensure proper recognition by university bodies of extracurricular activities. I will work on structuring a system whereby graduate students get supervision credit demonstrating leadership necessary for their careers. I am privileged to serve alongside such a wonderful team of passionate students.
