Water resources engineering is my chosen field, and river engineering studies are my focus. I have nearly two decades of GIS experience, including hydraulic analyses using HEC-GeoRAS, GIS-based geomorphic analysis and assessment, database development, cartography, and GIS-based mapping. I manage GIS and hydrosurvey projects.
I have extensive experience using GPS to support geomorphic mapping and hydrographic surveying. I have experience and a working knowledge in the use of the Trimble GeoExplorer GPS handheld and other tablets in performing real-time GIS mapping.
My other experience includes bank protection design, sedimentation modeling, hydraulic modeling, field investigations for bridge site inspection, and geomorphic investigation and assessment. I'm proficient in specialized programs used for hydraulic analysis and mapping, including ArcGIS 9, HEC-GeoRAS, ArcPad, HEC-RAS, Global Mapper, MicroStation, InRoads SelectCAD, Descartes, Hypack, RMA-2V, and HEC-6.
I received an Instructor of Excellence award from the National Highway Institute (NHI) for my teaching in fiscal 2019.
Here are my primary areas of expertise:
- Hydraulic modeling
- Hydrographic surveying
- MicroStation (Descartes/SelectCAD)
- Arc View
- Trimble GeoXT GPS handheld
