Brief History

Dr. Goni Boulama began working at RMC in 2007. Prior to coming to RMC, he held a research scientist position at the Energy Technology Laboratory of Hydro-Québec, QC. The projects in which he was involved then were related to energy conversion and energy efficiency. Dr. Goni Boulama holds Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Sherbrooke, QC, with a specialization in the numerical simulation of mixed convection flows in confined geometries.
