Panteha Fallah 

I have started my PhD in Jan 2019 in Materials engineering at McGill University (2nd year PhD student). My research is focused on coating and surface engineering. I did my master’s at Concordia University in mechanical engineering. After finishing my master’s, two months of working in an aerospace company in Montreal, motivated me to pursue my studies in a filed that I loved, although it was my dream job! I believe you need to explore the things you love in your life until you find your favorites. Fear can also be constructive by forcing you to be thoughtful around many aspects of your process and to be ready for obstacles that lie ahead.


Amir R.R. Esfahani

I had my previous degree in Metallurgical Engineering at KNUST in Ghana.  I am currently in the mineral processing group at McGill University, studying MEng Materials Engineering.  My project topic is '' The Effect of Temperature on Bubble Size in Flotation.'' In my free time I just like to relax.  I have passion for inspiring the younger generation to enjoy education to the fullest.
