Aditya Chaudhuri, BASc’17
Aditya Chaudhuri, also known as Adi, is a budding musician, an absolute animal lover, and a very proud UBC engineer. As a consultant in the technology industry, Adi is passionate about contributing towards the development and implementation of technologies and processes that will create a sustainable, efficient, and robust future. Caring deeply about issues like poverty, inequality, and climate change, nothing excites him more than galvanizing young people over the same topics, because to him, this means that tomorrow’s leaders are already taking their first steps. Adi continues to work extensively with Engineers Without Borders promoting gender equity, poverty alleviation, Canada’s foreign policy, the SDGs, and was even recognized as an Alberta Top 30 Under 30 for his work. Additionally, he is deeply involved with a number of non-profit, community-oriented, and academic organizations, including UBC and alumni UBC. When not at his desk, he can be found volunteering his time at a local animal shelter, enjoying the majestic Canadian Rockies, or immersed in practicing Hindustani classical music.
