Olivia Maier – Sponsorship Manager
Hi, my name is Olivia Maier and I’m in fourth year studying Chemical Engineering! This is my second year on QFCT and my first as Sponsorship Manager. I like snowboarding and dogs and firmly believe that citrus season is the best season. Also, since spending a semester in Dublin, I sometimes slip into an Irish accent while public speaking, although I’m not Irish at all. Excited to be back on QFCT!
Nicholas Wilson – Sponsorship Specialist
Hi! My name is Nicholas Wilson, and I am a third year Biochemical Engineering Student from Mill Bay, BC, a small town on Vancouver Island. When I’m not attending to my farm animals, I can be found hiking, skiing, sailing, and complaining about Ontario’s lack of mountains. A small-town man at heart, I’m committed to solving environmental and healthcare problems, as well as learning about the latest country songs. I have high expectations for QFCT’s success this year, and hopes to continue working with such a great team!

I am passionate about tackling renewable energy problems and have been a member of QFCT since second year. I am extremely proud of the teams first place finish at the 2016 Shell Eco-Marathon Challenge and look forward to the opportunity to continue growing and learning with QFCT.
Alana Walsh – Graphics Manager
Hi, my name is Alana Walsh and I’m in my third year of chemical engineering. I’m so excited to be developing graphics and content for QFCT, as well as volunteering time for the stack team. Being from the countryside, I love to pretend I like camping and hiking when I am really complaining the entire time. I’m really looking forward to see the final product of QFCT’s hard work this year!

As website and IT manager, I am responsible for creating and maintaining this website. I will be keeping you up to date with all of the latest QFTC news.

Matthew Medri – Education Manager
Hi, my name is Matthew Medri and I am a third year Chemical Engineering student. I am the current Education Manager for QFCT and also work with the mechanical division of the team. I was the driver of the team’s fuel cell vehicle for the 2016 Shell Eco-Marathon, during which the team placed first in the fuel cell division! I have a firm belief that racing stripes will make the vehicle at least 30% faster, and I am looking into adding a cup holder that is compatible with the race helmet.

Quinlan Hickey – Media Manager
Hi, my name is Quinlan Hickey and i’m in 4th year Chemical Engineering. This is my second year as the marketing manager for QFCT. Some might say I was hired for this position because of my fire Instagram feed, I would say it’s because fuel cells are super cool and everyone should be aware of the amazing influence they have on technology. Also, I think that puppies are an integral part of daily life.
Katie Wright – Finance Manager
Hi, my name is Katie Wright and I’m a fourth year chemical engineering student. In my (minimal) free time I like to manage the finances for QFCT! My favorite animal is a bald eagle and I saw one on the first day of 2017, so this is gonna be my year!! Finally, I believe that pineapple does not belong on pizza and so if you are a fan of Hawaiian, you are wrong.
