Dave Bigelow's Bio

Dave Bigelow is a Geological Engineer (EIT), specialising in the fields of hydrology, geohazards and AI. He is at Minerva Intelligence, a Vancouver, Canada-based company. There, Dave is leading the development of an application that leverages semantic Artificial Intelligence (AI) and numerical modelling to produce explainable urban flood risk assessments.

Dave Bigelow received a Bachelor of Applied Science from the University of British Columbia in Geological Engineering with a minor in Commerce, and an Master of Science in Geological Engineering from Simon Fraser University, investigating glacial lake outburst flood hazards. Results from his research have been presented at international conferences and published in scientific journals. Before joining Minerva, Dave worked in consulting engineering, gaining hands-on experience in geotechnical and hydrotechnical hazard assessments.
