My name is Mariam Lahlou (She/her) and I am a MASc student in the System Design Engineering department. My research focuses on implementing a model of two-dimensional magnetic pendulums and investigating the interaction forces between them. Before coming to University of Waterloo, I was a bachelor in Mechanical Engineering major with a Green Engineering minor at Virginia Tech. As an undergraduate, I had the opportunity to work both as a Resident Advisor as well as Math tutor for 3 years.
As the GSA Equity coordinator, I will strive to help Graduate students from different backgrounds to connect and have a platform where they feel welcome and supported. I also want to raise incoming graduate students’ awareness of the various on campus resources available for them and the different services they have access to.
