Alvin has a Bachelor of Engineering in Natural Resources Engineering from the University of Canterbury. His studies have focused on understanding ecological systems and services as well as water contamination and modelling.
Alvin is currently part of the Low Carbon Challenge with the Wellington City Council. His project is focussing on developing aquaponics in order to generate food supplies within cities in order to minimise food mileage and improve efficiencies.
Studying in Christchurch has allowed Alvin to enjoy snowboarding through winter and tramping in summer across the South Island. Spending time in New Zealand’s national parks has given him a great appreciation for natural systems which he wants to ensure are maintained and understood.
