A Texas native, Dr. Christine Weber is combining the knowledge she acquired while pursuing her PhD (focused on dam research) with her 10 years of experience in dam design at Stantec to help Texas solve its growing flood and water supply needs. She’s working with the Water team in Texas to cross-sell our expertise in dams to existing clients, with the ultimate goal of growing a local WaterPower & Dams team that can service dams, levees, and hydropower projects across Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.
A geotechnical engineer, Christine has supervised design and engineering analysis activities for dams, water reservoirs/storage facilities, water conveyance structures, mine tailing management facilities, and mine remediation/closure. Her expertise in engineering analysis includes static slope stability calculations and modeling, two-dimensional and three-dimensional seepage analysis, and static settlement analysis. She also has experience in planning and implementing geotechnical field investigations and leading seismic hazard assessments, seismic deformation analysis, and liquefaction assessments.
Christine has worked on the Panama Canal Third Set of Locks’ Borinquen Dams, and she’s currently leading the design analyses for the asphalt-core rockfill dam for the Chimney Hollow Reservoir project. But when she isn’t at work, you might find her rediscovering her love for Texas—two-stepping to Texas music, enjoying Texas BBQ with friends, and watching Texas A&M football games with her fellow Aggies.
