I have a bachelor's degree in engineering (B.Ing.), a Master’s degree (M.Sc.) and a Ph.D. in civil engineering (river ice and river hydraulics, Laval) from Laval University (Quebec City). During my graduate research, I studied river ice formation processes (frazil ice) and river ice dynamics. I relocated to St. John’s in early 2010 to work with C-CORE as a research engineer within the ice engineering group, where my research was focused on topics relevant to the offshore oil and gas industry such as ice forecasting, high-performance computing, computational fluid dynamics, modelling of ice loads, modelling of ice conditions at large spatial scales, characterization of environmental conditions, river ice, and, risk and probabilistic analyses. I have been involved in river/sea ice and Arctic research since 2006. I now work with the National Research Council of Canada within the Ocean, Coastal and River Engineering (OCRE). I have authored/co-authored numerous scientific publications in international peer-reviewed journals and conferences as well as many research and technical reports. I am an adjunct professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Memorial University of Newfoundland. I am also a registered Professional Engineer in Newfoundland and Labrador.
