Thomas Kavanagh

Visiting Student


Thomas Kavanagh is an undergraduate in General Engineering at Durham University in the UK, currently researching at UBCO over the summer. His focus is on concrete nodes for timber high-rise buildings, though he also has interests in increasing the role of women in engineering and the construction of civilizational refuges. Besides a design report on a mine detection rover, this is his first foray into academic research and hopes to learn relevant skills during his time here.
