In my more than 20 years at Ayres, my water resources engineering work has focused on river engineering studies, floodplain mapping, flood mitigation, bank protection design, river restoration, aquatic habitat analysis, grade control structure design, channel stability analysis and design, and scour analysis.
I've learned from industry experts in the river engineering field on projects that are of personal interest to me as well as technically challenging.
I have a lot of experience in hydraulic modeling and design and have provided 1-dimensional and 2-dimensional modeling for projects across the country. I also have a working knowledge of the data collection process needed to perform real-time and post-process hydrographic surveying, including operation of GPS equipment, survey grade fathometer, and computer software. I am experienced in processing hydrographic survey data, including data reduction and mapping.
I received an Instructor of Excellence award from the National Highway Institute (NHI) for my teaching in fiscal 2019.
My areas of expertise include:
- Water resource engineering
- Hydrographic surveying
- Hydraulic modeling and analysis
- Hydraulic design
- GIS mapping and project design
