Hydrotechnical Engineering

Specialized engineering consulting services for the hydropower and mining industries.

A registered mechanical engineer with 16+ years' experience in planning, design, and systems analysis in the hydropower and mining sector. Project scopes range from feasibility, operations, and asset monitoring and performance analysis.

In both owner's and contractor's engineer roles, I've worked on brownfield and greenfield hydropower developments for BC Hydro, Brookfield Renewable Energy Partners, and Innergex Renewable Energy Inc., among others. Project experience includes technical engineering design (structural concrete, steel, and wood for hydraulic structures), numerical simulation (open channel & high-pressure pipelines), independent engineering review of hydropower facility performance, hydrological analysis, value engineering, financial analysis, technical report writing, and management (project management, quality assurance, field supervision).

Currently, I am a PhD candidate in civil engineering at the University of British Columbia, where I focus on the characterization of uncertainty and risk in the water resource through the lens of information theory.

Data Analysis

Data Analysis for Systems Optimization and Performance Evaluation

As a mechanical/civil engineer with a keen interest in computer programming, I strive to develop systems that complement real decision processes by automating data collection and delivery—not decision-making.

Technical analysis can be optimized for decision systems. By incorporating automation into routine analytical processes and employing interactive applications, technical information can enhance communication and collaboration.
