UBC Geography

Research Assistant May 2015 to May 2016 Vancouver, BC I was a research assistant for the geography department head at the University of British Columbia. At this position I performed stream surveys for post graduate geofluvial research. Using a total station, hand measurements, magnetic tracers, and aerial photographs, I collected data on channel morphology, composition, and sediment transport rate. I then converted this raw data into shapefiles, created DEMs and TINs, and performed elevation change and sediment transport analyses. I also used drone and pole photo imagery to create a 3D model of the stream using Agisoft Photoscan. Northwest Hydraulic Consultants

This work was conducted in the UBC geofluvial laboratory, one of the most advanced in the world, and required proper education and use of sensitive equipment. I primarily collected and submitted data concerning sediment content and distribution for professional engineering projects. I also assisted in PhD research using flume tables, as well as hired and trained replacement technicians when I left the position.
