Welcome to my Home Page!

My name is Chad Balen and I am working on my M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Alberta. I am doing research in modeling the fluid flow in a polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC) using finite element analysis (FEA) in C++. In my spare time I enjoy running half marathons and cooking delicious chocolate desserts.
