James Andrew Smith's Blog

I'm an associate professor (professeur agrégé) in York University's Lassonde School of Engineering. I dedicate my time primarily to teaching, but also conduct research and work to make education, engineering and science and academia more just, inclusive, diverse and equitable.

Originally from Québec City, I studied at the University of Alberta and worked on during my PhD at McGill and my post-doc in Jena, Germany. My professor career began at X University in Toronto in 2008. In 2015 I joined York University. In 2018/19 I went on sabbatical in France and worked at both the INSA in Strasbourg and Hochschule Karlsruhe in nearby Karlsruhe, Germany.
