Disability Resource Centre welcomes new Accessibility Advisor
The Disability Resource Centre (DRC) is pleased to welcome Meghan Currie, UBC Okanagan's newest accessibility advisor.
Currie's new role gives the DRC two advisors to help determine eligibility for academic accommodations, provide advising and support to students, and work with faculty to help them best support their students when needed.
Congratulations to UBC Okanagan researchers receiving Canada Foundation for Innovation John R. Evans Leaders Fund (JELF) awards this week.
Announced Tuesday, awards totaling more than $740,000 go to Edward Hornibrook, Nathaniel Pelletier, Lesley Lutes and Jesse Tanguay in the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences, and Jian Liu in the School of Engineering.
Engineering PhD candidate Gyan Chhipi Shrestha says high-density communities can make better use of the Okanagan's limited water supply.
UBC research suggests higher density communities can save water
Single family dwellers consume considerably more water than others
The beauty of a lush green lawn may be more costly than just the use of water, according to researchers in the School of Engineering.
Gyan Kumar Chhipi Shrestha, a PhD candidate with the School of Engineering, has recently published several research papers about water use, water distribution systems, and the energy consumed supplying water to homes.
