Engineered Technologies Research Team
Before joining NSCC in January of 2013, Etienne was a research scientist at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Centre and a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Arizona in Tucson. He received his diploma of applied science in mechanical engineering and pedagogical sciences from the University of Douala in Cameroon. Etienne earned a masters of science in mechanical engineering and his first PhD in that same discipline at the Blekinge Institute of Technology in Sweden. He completed a second PhD in biomedical engineering at Concordia University.
After a obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Food Science from the University of Ghana, Ruth completed her Master of Science in Applied Human Nutrition from Mount Saint Vincent University. Her research focus with the Engineered Technologies Lab is on developing solutions for sustainable agriculture and food systems.
