My name is Majd Al-shihabi 🏴.

I am a technologist, turned urban planner, turned technologisturbanplanner. I am a PhD student at the University of Toronto in the Geography and Planning department. My research is around the energy modelling that the City of Toronto uses to decide policy for its climate action plan, TransformTO. I am exploring how I can use participatory modelling to understand the ontology of models, but also the ontology of modelling as a method. I think about how epistemic communitiea are formed, and how they become a part of the right to the city.
