Prospective students

I am currently looking for students in the following positions:

NEW!: Prospective Students in Canada interested in a Master’s theses in Fire Safety Engineering are particularly encouraged to apply for consideration of a fully funded project in Timber in Fire for use in Canadian Design.

More details on this timber subject can be found here

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 compose a letter which: describes their relevant skill sets and their experience as pertaining to research we perform; outlines their career goals; and 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 WSTEM and Diversity in higher education’. The letter should be included as text in your sent email. Pdf and/or doc files will not be opened. Your letter should note class standing as well (x ranking out of y).

Emails that do not follow the above procedure will be ignored. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted afterwards and invited to submit their full CV.

Qualified Canadian and International students are provided with 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 students annually.
