I am a life-long learner and self-taught when it comes to programming languages, which include R, Python, C#, FORTRAN, SQL, Shell scripting, VB.Net and VBA to name a few. While in university, I created and published The Canadian Climate Scraping Tool (CCDST) to help helping researchers collect data from Environment Canada in a more efficient manner. I've been creating simple tools used to automate procedures, which means more efficient data processing and analysis, while reducing errors.
Currently: Modelling and Data Analyst for Government of Alberta (GOA), Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. I currently work with irrigation, flow measurement, climate, crop, spatial, land use, and other data used in irrigation demand modelling using Irrigation Demand Model (IDM3), ArcGIS, SQL Server Management, DDIT and Water Information Systems by Kisters (WISKI). I maintain and integrate database with automated tools, scripts and applications that allows faster, more efficient data manipulation, analysis and interpretation. I lead the project to re-brand the 2018 Alberta Irrigation Information using R to utilise beautiful graphics.I also utilized R in reporting the analysis and data visualisation of 27 reservoirs within the South Saskatchewan River Basin in Alberta. I also developed an SQL Query Extractor application based in C# that is integrated with SQL Server Management application. I worked as a Modeller and GIS Analyst for MacDonald Hydrology Consulting Ltd using Raven and OSTRICH for hydrological modelling and utilising R data analysis and visualization.
Creating maps is a creative outlet. I have been creating maps for various publications, including theses and journal articles. For a sample, please check out 2018 Alberta Irrigation Information, Amber Zary, MA, Aimee Benoit, MA, Dr. Tom Johnston, and Dr. Geoffrey Hale.
With my involvement with various volunteer organizations, I've been fortunate enough to work on various projects, manage websites and social media platforms. For instance, I’ve mapped where the recipient schools in the Philippines for ReadWorld Foundation, managed data and used data analytics visualisation for District 42 Toastmasters and Coulee Commentators , designed and created Lethbridge International Film Festival websites, the ReadWorld Foundation. and Dr. Glenda Bonifacio's academic website.
