Michal Zielinski is an articling student in our Vancouver office. He has recently completed his Juris Doctor from the University of Alberta, and also holds a Ph.D. in Materials Engineering and Medical Science.
In 2009, after finishing his engineering degree, Michal worked as a materials engineer in the Advanced Materials Business Unit of the Alberta Research Council in Edmonton. In 2015, Michal was chosen to represent Canada at the 65th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, which brings together Nobel Prize winners and young scientists from around the world.
During his graduate and undergraduate studies, Michal received multiple scholarships and awards recognizing his academic excellence, including the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship – Doctoral; the Alberta Ingenuity Graduate Student Scholarship – Doctoral; and the APEGA Past Presidents’ Medal in Materials Engineering.
He has published several papers and has presented his research to academic societies and industry groups.
