APTIM Utilizes Coastal Engineering and Urban Resilience Expertise to Help “Future Proof” At-Risk Communities

On episode 5 of APTCast, join us as we discuss “future proofing” or anticipating how to manage and avoid future shocks and stresses. One critical way APTIM is developing future scenarios for its clients is by digging deeper into large datasets with innovative tools and layering relevant factors from within the different sectors of APTIM to assess conditions with a wider, more inclusive lens. Join Dr. Samantha Danchuk, Director, Coastal Ports & Marine, as she leads an engaging conversation with APTIM’s Dr. Zhifei Dong, Coastal Modeler and Sebastian Sizgoric Technical Achievement Award recipient, and Bridget Huston, APTIM’s Climate & Urban Resilience Specialist.
