Specialised in River Engineering & Flood-Sediment-Bridge Interaction
Member of ASCE & Professional Engineers Ontario (Canada)
2001 - Present
Jan 2009 - Jan 2015
Designed and analysed scaled meandering streams as evidenced by 5 technical reports on river flow, bank erosion & planimetric changes which improved knowledge on bank erosion.
Consulted lab and field projects (river bank, beach profile & dunes stabilization & PIV measurements in Ottawa) as demonstrated by improved project productivity.
Trained students in River Engineering & Hydrology resulted in enhanced learning.
Collected, analysed & visualised data evidenced by development of 5 technical documents.
Developed a novel sand-fixing technique resulted in enhanced flexibility in river research.
Supported & trained an MSc student (from TU München) in modeling as demonstrated by successful degree completion.
Developed numerical codes for sediment transport & erosion/deposition into a flow model. Modelled 2D scour (flow depth 0.14m) & trench migration (flow depth 0.39m & trench depth 0.17m) & post processed, analysed & visualised data, resulted in 2 technical reports.
Produced technical reports on construction of a wharf (water depth of 55m) & application of marine mattresses for erosion control in 7 marine projects resulted in enhanced engineering knowledge.
Numerical Code Developer (short term contract)
GEO Morphix Ltd., Milton, Canada
Developed a code for pre- to post-development hydrological analysis via using an open-source package (Scilab) resulted in saving license fee.Analyzed field data as demonstrated by interactive visualisation (maps, figures, charts).

River Engineer worked on Meandering Rivers Morphology
River and Estuarine Morphodynamics Lab.
Queen's University, Kingston, Canada
Sep 2006 - Sep 2008
Developing proficiency in flood risk assessment of bridges by designing experiments on river flooding hydrodynamics, local scour measurement using sonar & hydraulic loading and to improve UK transport infrastructure resilience & update UK’s CIRIA C742 manual
Efficient communication, client-facing skills, multidisciplinary teamwork, support & collaboration with UK clients in bridge management (e.g. Environment Agency, Network Rail & Devon County Council) international partners & modellers from 3 universities for proposal production & grant writing as verified via quality control & project administration
Quantitative skills in data post processing & analysis, programming, drawing, visualisation & instrumentation using +20 industries (identified via market knowledge) & international clients evidenced by 5 technical reports and presentations in 5 countries
Supporting cost estimation, budget tracking and sticking to it, time management, scheduling, strategic planning & increasing productivity resulted in saving several thousand £
Conflict resolution, problem solving, Can-Do attitude; information management & website designer evidenced by cost reduction, effective use of resources & increasing project impact
Riprap design and construction for scour management at a model bridge pier
Supervision of an MEng team, people management & supporting training on lab facility management, modeling flood flow and scour at bridge piers & data analysis evidenced by increased productivity and improved technical reports
Progressive Personal Business
Mar 2015 - Apr 2015
Supervised & inspected construction site and planned specification, timeline revision & basic cost estimation in civil projects which resulted in improved construction workflow of projects.
