Awards and Distinctions

Atlantic Computational Excellence Network (ACENET) Research Fellowship

Advanced Research Computing (ARC) involves a cluster of computers working together to solve scientific, engineering, business or data analysis problems that are too large or complex for any single computer. Used by researchers, governments and industry, advanced computing can remove years from timelines for research or product innovation and makes new types of analysis and problem solving possible. Advanced computing is a rapidly-growing combination of hardware, software and skills that is advancing Canada's expertise and capabilities in science and technology, with resulting benefits for both economic development and society at large. The availability and quality of advanced computing services is critical to attracting top research talent in the region and Canada. The ACEnet Research Fellowship Program is aimed at graduate and undergraduate students, where a significant component of their research will use ACEnet support and ARC resources.

ASHRAE Student Scholarship

ASHRAE (formerly the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) is an international organization dedicated to advancing the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration for the benefit of the public. ASHRAE consists of 51,000 members from 120 nations and is affiliated with 30 sister organizations in 26 countries.
ASHRAE Halifax Chapter was established in 1964 and is now responsible for Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. I am the recipient of the First Prize of 2015-2016 Halifax Chapter Scholarship.
