Jacques Luk-Cyr | Thermal-Flow & Structure Application Engineer | MAYA simulation
Ingrid Chaires | Building Physics Engineer | ARUP
Rubina Ramponi | Advanced Technology and Research Engineer| ARUP

Jacques Luk-Cyr is one of the 130 application engineers/consultants at MAYA simulation located in Montreal. He has participated in dozens of projects related to the thermal and flow simulation of buildings for assessing air quality and ventilation, thermal comfort, condensation and thermal bridging. He holds a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as well as a Ph.D. from École Polytechnique.

Ingrid Chaires is an engineer in the advanced technology and research group at Arup. Her work is focused on building physics related projects including air quality, energy modeling, and computational fluid dynamics.

Rubina Ramponi is an engineer in Arup’s Advanced Technology and Research team, working in the area of wind engineering and environmental physics. She applies computational methods and experiments to gain an understanding of outdoor thermal comfort, pedestrian level wind conditions, reflected solar heat and glare.
