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 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.
Jordan is a research associate with the Applied Research Engineered Technologies Lab. His research focuses on multidisciplinary system design and simulation. He is currently working on completing a Bachelor of Engineering Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Dalhousie University.
Tommy is going into his second year of NSCC's CAD Technician program. His areas of interests are in the design of mechanical research projects and drafting. He joined the Engineering Technologies Research team to gain hands-on, practical experience in his field of study.
A graduate of the Mechanical Engineering Technology program at NSCC, Khan is thrilled to remain on campus in a different capacity as a research associate for Engineering Technologies. His work focuses on mechanical design, CAD, stress analysis, dynamic modelling and simulation, as well as performance assessment of structures.
Mo's area of expertise is Mechanical Behavior of Materials. Mo obtained a B.Sc and M.Sc in Mechanical Engineering from the American University in Cairo. He also holds an M.Sc and Ph.D degrees in Materials Science & Engineering from Drexel University in Pennsylvania, USA. Dr. Mo Shamma was a Visiting Researcher at San Diego State University before joining NSCC.
Mo is bringing more than 12 years of wide interdisciplinary research and practical experience in diverse engineering related topics such as: Polymers and Composite Materials, Nanostructured Materials, Structure-Property-Processing-Performance Relationship, Selection of Materials, Processes for Engineering Design, and Lean Manufacturing.
Nick is studying Mechanical Engineering Technology at NSCC. His areas of focus are material science and mechanical design. He joined the Engineering Technologies Research team to learn and explore various engineering applications and to apply what he's learned in class on real projects. Working as a research assistant in his field is giving Nick a strong base moving forward in his career.
Martin has extensive experience in the development of applied research programs. His expertise involving chemical and biological treatment processes and their applications to biotechnology/fermentation, aquaculture, food processing, water/wastewater, oil and gas production, make him a valuable asset to the team.
An Associate Professor in the School of Engineering at Acadia University, Martin continuously contributes to engaged-learning, innovative teaching methodologies for science, and engineering in a post-secondary environment.
