I'm Heather, research director at Innovation Lighthouse. I have been passionate about sustainability since I was a kid, and most of my education, work and fun side-projects have been centered around the same goal as Innovation Lighthouse: creating sustainable spaces. I obtained my Ph.D. in civil and environmental engineering from the University of Toronto and I have expertise and strong interest in water systems and urban agriculture. I actively seek out projects in my spare time that combine these two fields.
I joined Innovation Lighthouse because I truly see the potential positive impacts that can be realized by making our built environment more sustainable. Also, this role gives me the opportunity to combine my technical, research and entrepreneurial skills and I learn something new every day.
