Alumnus (now at Arborus)

During his bachelor’s degree, Austin worked on the Carleton Solar Decathlon Team, and focused on guiding the project using existing literature on the strengths and weaknesses of previous high efficiency homes. In 2011, he helped design a retrofit for a heritage building for the Eco-logical Competition, and volunteered with the competition the following year. More recently, Austin worked at Minto Group Inc. as a Junior Green Building Consultant, which involved analyzing building energy use in order to find ways of reducing energy use and environmental impact.

 Austin completed an M.A.Sc. of Sustainable Energy Engineering (co-supervised by Craig Merrett) in 2015, studying high efficiency house design, modelling and optimization techniques.
