“After meeting with Prof. Amir Hakami’ Research Team, working on atmospheric modeling and decision making studies, which is also among the best in this field, I became interested in perusing my PhD studies in this area in Carleton. I believe that studying and earning a PhD in Carleton University (Environmental Engineering Department) would give me invaluable experience to reach my ultimate goal.  Carleton thoroughness and care towards students, is fascinating and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to do my PhD here at Carleton.
