Mehdi Aminipouri

PhD Candidate

I am a PhD student in the Department of Geography at Simon Fraser University. Using urban microclimate models, my research aims to assess the effectiveness of urban greening and reflective roofs in keeping Vancouver’s urban neighborhoods cool and people safe during an extreme heat event.

I hold a Master of Science degree in Environmental Modeling and Management from a joint European university consortium including Southampton University (UK), Lund University (Sweden), University of Warsaw (Poland) and University of Twente (The Netherlands).

In my spare time, I play soccer, go hiking and enjoy spending time with family.
