Amal holds a Bachelor of Applied Sciences (Honours) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Ottawa. She is registered with the Professional Engineers Ontario as an Engineer Intern (EIT). Amal is currently working as a Junior Exercise Planner for ISR. She is supporting the technical development of all-hazards emergency management exercises (including radiological and nuclear scenarios) and the development of high quality technical documentation.
Prior to joining ISR in 2016, Amal completed two work terms in the Public Sector. She developed strong professional and interpersonal skills while working alongside engineers, scientists, technical staff and administrators on a daily basis. Amal undertook several analyses on the long distance transport of thermal energy, the development of greenhouse gas (GHG) cost curves for option evaluation and the environmental impact of district energy projects with different energy inputs. She also participated in several site visits to help analyzing mechanical systems in the buildings and conducting surveys to estimate costs for changing the systems from steam to low temperature hot water.
