Aimy Bazylak received her Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics from the University of Saskatchewan, and her MASc and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Victoria, where she specialized in numerical and experimental investigations of microfluidic and polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs). Professor Bazylak is the principal investigator of the TEAM Lab, where she leads a talented team of postgraduate researchers. She is the Director of the Institute for Sustainable Energy (ISE) and also the Associate Director for the NSERC CREATE Program in Distributed Generation for Remote Communities (DGRC).

Her research interests include transport phenomena in PEMFCs, PEM electrolyzers, microfluidic fuel cells, multiphase flow in porous media, clean energy technologies, and energy sustainability. In 2011, Prof. Bazylak received the I.W. Smith Award from the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering, and in 2012 she received an Early Researcher Award from the Government of Ontario.
