Anna Gagnon is a geological engineer, who joined J.D. Mollard and Associates (2010) Limited in 2011 after completing her degree at the University of Saskatchewan. Anna has work experience in both geology and engineering including geological mapping experience with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Energy and Resources and civil engineering surveying and design. Anna’s work at JDMA has largely focused on assessing geological and geomorphological site conditions as they relate to proposed or existing infrastructure. She specializes in shoreline erosion studies for proposed and existing hydroelectric reservoirs on northern rivers in Manitoba and British Columbia and slope stability studies on sensitive valley sides and reservoir shorelines throughout Saskatchewan.
Anna is a proficient user of GIS and through her work at JDMA has gained vast experienced in using remote sensing techniques such as airphoto interpretation and GIS-based spatial analysis for a range of engineering and environmental applications. Anna helped to develop and program a computer model which predicts wave-driven bank erosion. Her field experience includes carrying out slope stability site investigations and assessments, lacustrine sediment coring and sampling of aggregate deposits.
