Prospective students

Doctoral and Master Studentships:

Prior to applying, I encourage prospective students interested in working with me on a graduate research project to first review my current research described on this website, and then to email to chat about possibilities and openings.

When emailing me ( ) , prospective students should also compose a letter as text in their email (Pdf and/or doc files will not be opened) which:

  • Describes their relevant skill sets and their experience as pertaining to research we perform;
  • Outlines their career goals;
  • Provides a well-articulated position statement that addresses the theme – ‘Defining appropriate education for developing Fire Safety Engineering in Canada and abroad’. In your position statement you should discuss your opinions on the topic of ‘Enhancing Inclusion and Diversity in higher education’.

Emails that do not follow the above instructions will be ignored.

Due to the volume of emails our team receives, only short-listed candidates will be contacted afterwards and invited to submit their full CV.

Qualified Canadian and International students are provided with highly competitive funding packages which can cover tuition and living expenses.

Undergraduate and CO-OP Internships:

I am a strong believer in undergraduate research opportunities and generally hire about 4 to 6 undergraduate students annually. Please email for availability.
