Aaron is a civil engineer (EIT) with a strong background in water resources and hydraulics. He received his MSc in Water Science and Engineering from IHE Delft in the Netherlands, where he specialized in hydraulics and river basin development. His thesis investigated potential impacts to Chinook salmon spawning habitat from dam removal, using a two-dimensional morphodynamic model. Aaron has over six years of experience developing numerical models for dam breach and flood inundation analyses, including projects in the Columbia, Spokane, Clackamas and North Umpqua River basins. In tandem with analytical skills, Aaron has experience in hydrographic and topographic surveying. Outside the office he can typically be found at the climbing gym, paddling outrigger canoe, or making a mess in the kitchen.
