Emma Fudge, Junior Field Service Engineer, Irving Shipbuilding
Prepping OERA’s Atlantic Canada energy system model for widespread use when it launches later this year is Emma Fudge’s focus as a tester with the project.
A recent graduate of Dalhousie University’s Mechanical Engineering program, Emma became involved in the modelling project through a Renewable Energy Resources class she took with Dr. Lukas Swan during her final semester. In addition to her work testing the energy system model, Emma is currently working for Irving Shipbuilding in Halifax as a Junior Field Service Engineer.

For Jessie, holiday trips to Vancouver Island, charter fishing excursions with her dad and becoming a certified diver at the age of 15 sparked her interest in marine ecology. These experiences made her aware of the tough balance between sustaining fisheries and preserving ecosystems, leading her to want to pursue fisheries science.
