From a one-room house to the heights of academia

A young woman is scheduled to mark another milestone Saturday on her remarkable journey from a one-room house in India to academic success at the University of Waterloo.

Pampa Dey, who grew up in a remote village where a kerosene lamp was often the only source of light, is to receive a PhD in civil engineering for research on improving the vibration performance of aluminum bridges.

“I never thought I’d come this far in life,” said Dey, a post-doctoral fellow at Waterloo Engineering. “I now know that I can explore anything and achieve my dreams.”
