Sebastian Dziallas is a Founding Faculty Member at Fulbright University Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City. He completed his PhD work in the Computing Education Research Group at the University of Kent. His research examines characteristics of computer science graduates and uses a highly qualitative, narrative methodology to explore the sense graduates make of their own educational experiences within their wider learning trajectories. Before joining the University of Kent, he graduated from Olin College of Engineering in the United States.
Naoko Ellis is a Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of British Columbia (UBC). She holds a Ph.D. (UBC, 2003); M.E.Sc. (Western, 1993); and a B.Sc. (Honours, Waterloo, 1991). She is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC. Her expertise lies in the area of multiphase reaction engineering with emphasis on biomass utilization. Some current projects include: biomass gasification and pyrolysis; CO2 capture, including chemical looping combustion; pyrolysis product utilization; and biofuels. She is also interested in sustainability education and transdisciplinary learning.
Dr. Bruce has a passion for technology development with a focus on empowering society through altering perception and perspective. He holds a B.A.Sc. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Waterloo, an M.A.Sc. in Materials Science & Engineering from McMaster University, and a Ph.D. in Chemical and Biological Engineering from the University of British Columbia. This varied engineering education has taught him to view our world through a multifaceted lens. Dr. Bruce has studied and worked in the alternative energy field for 15 years in a variety of disciplines, with industrial experience in both large tech companies and start-ups. Dr. Bruce is keen to share his understanding into underlying physical science and how to use it to actualize engineering and bring innovation from conception to production. Dr. Bruce is an avid sculptor, painter, and photographer and he hopes to pioneer integration of fine arts with engineering at Fulbright to help examine what serendipitous discoveries can be found through these combined fields.
