Meet Daniel Adria - Civil Engineer
Daniel Adria is a MASc student in Geological Engineering within the EOAS department at UBC, under Dr. Scott McDougall in the Geohazards Research Team. He is investigating tailings dam failures and their subsequent runout characteristics, to reduce uncertainties in risk assessments and emergency planning for mine projects and communities. Daniel completed his bachelor degree in civil engineering at UBC and worked in the consulting industry for a few years before returning to academia. When not modelling a tailings dam failure on a computer, Daniel can be often found outside, either skiing, sailing, or hiking throughout the south west coast of BC.
