Although Jarred’s job is in analysis and design, his real work is in critical thinking—figuring out how to use our tools and knowledge to achieve the best possible outcome for clients. His focus is on flood hazard assessment and mitigation, helping communities understand their risk and take steps to reduce potential impacts.
As part of a core team of planners, designers, and scientists, Jarred has contributed his expertise to the Automated Mitigation Project Identifier program. It’s a Stantec-developed tool that assesses flood mitigation opportunities on a large, automated scale. Working with clients in New Jersey, New Orleans, and elsewhere, Jarred and the team are helping the community understand how much flood risk they’re exposed to and prioritize cost-effective solutions.
When Jarred isn’t studying flooding sources at work, it’s a fair bet that you’ll find him out near one on his free time. He enjoys being in nature, whether that’s canoeing down a river, swimming in the ocean, or backpacking with friends.
