Minha R. Ha is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Lassonde School of Engineering. She has a multidisciplinary background in the sciences and education research, and is conducting research on the socio-technical knowledge integration in engineering design. Her work experience in student leadership, faculty development, and engineering ethics education has led her to seek ways to empower young people in engineering – to bring their whole selves to the work they do, to see themselves meaningfully connected to the work and culture of engineering as the leaders of their future profession. Her recent research work has highlighted the role of dominant narratives and gendered experiences of the school culture. She enjoys leading workshops in the Let’s Talk Science events, mentoring youth in the Korean Canadian community, and teaching undergraduate students to think critically and creatively about technology’s impact on society.
