Dr. Lianne Lefsrud

Dr. Lianne Lefsrud is an Assistant Professor, Engineering Safety and Risk Management at the University of Alberta.

Emotion in Motion

Emotions have been shown to dominate our evaluations, decision-making, and many other individual level processes. Many technological issues such as embryonic stem-cell research, climate change, and evolution do not appear to be processed cognitively at all. In such cases, more information and rational arguments often do not persuade.

Changing the Face of Energy

The energy industry is at critical stage in its ongoing development. In order to overcome current and future challenges, we need to engage a diverse workforce and advocate on behalf of the companies and the industry we represent.

The Millennium Initiative

Being able to use natural gas also means that you are not having to endure post-completion venting or flaring. Natural gas is perfectly compatible with sales line gas since both are one in the same. This means producers can use the same product for sale that they used to create the fracture in the first place.
