Concordia’s Department of Building, Civil, and Environmental
Engineering (BCEE) is a pioneer when it comes to advances in the
construction industry. It has provided me with a bridge between
my educational objectives and professional skills.

My research focuses on dynamic support systems for Canadian
hospitals and my supervisors are leaders in their domain. They
have fully supported my research and helped me develop my
capabilities to their full potential.

     Concordia is leading the way in Indigenous engagement initiatives
     and it's exciting to see where that momentum will lead the
     university. It's important for Indigenous students to have guidance
     and mentorship from the best Indigenous scholars, and it's
     important that our people and stories are treated with respect.

     My research is on the Indian Day Schools that operated in my
     home community of Kahnawà:ke over several generations. For me,
     Concordia is a place where I can pursue these unique research
     interests while honouring my commitments to my family and
     community. My time at the university has helped me to reconnect
     with Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal as part of our traditional territory.
