Event Details:

The Rural Issues workshop will welcome Xiomara Sanchez with her co-authored (with Paige Vincent) paper “Infrastructure asset management systems for rural communities.” 

The paper explores how to infrastructure asset management can be implemented by rural communities to manage things like roads, by addressing their worth of assets, understanding issues of differed maintenance, and exploring risk management as it applies to rural infrastructure. 
Dr. Xiomara Sanchez is Assistant professor and the D.C. Campbell Chair for Highway Construction and Pavement Research at UNB. Before moving to Canada, she had several years of experience working as a consultant in Colombia. She completed her PhD at the University of Waterloo under the supervision of Dr. Susan Tighe, author of the current Pavement Design and Management Guide of the Transportation Association of Canada. Her research focus has been on the performance of road building materials. She joined the Department of Civil Engineering in January 2015 where she is the instructor of the materials for civil engineers, pavement design and infrastructure asset management courses. This paper is the product of the term report presented by Paige Vincent, who obtained her Bachelor in Civil Engineering on May 2017.

After the workshop, we will reconvene at the Grad House for dinner at 5:30 p.m.
