Grayflare: Spin-off company producing ANSI rated laser barrier solutions and spectral imagers.

University of Alberta: With more than 35,000 students, the University of Alberta is one of the largest universities in western Canada. We work in the brand new Centennial Center for Interdisciplinary Science, a modern state-of-the-art building housing scientists from Physics, Chemistry, and Earth and Atmospheric Sciences.

Edmonton: With a population of just over 1 million, Edmonton is the northernmost major city in North America. Originally the Fort Edmonton trading post (which you can still visit), Edmonton is now a diverse, thriving metropolis, with several professional sports teams, a jam-packed summer festival schedule, and the largest river parkway in North America. It is also a 4-hour drive from the famous ski centers at Banff and Jasper, in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
