As a Principal in our Edmonton office, I manage and support project work in Canada, including hydrologic and hydraulic studies in the areas of flood management, dam safety, drainage, and stormwater management. In a recent project, I led the review and comparison of various modelling tools for the Province of Alberta Flood Forecast, and subsequent model development and prototype testing of HEC-HMS and Raven for the Red Deer and Simonette River basins. I enjoy being involved in interesting projects that often require that we push the limits of engineering knowledge and technology. Outside of work, I enjoy hiking and skiing in the Rockies.
