Internship, Washington, DC - April 29, 2015
Working with the company, I have learned in detail about hydrology modeling (HEC-HMS, SWMM, TR-55), and watershed analysis (ArcGIS). I was assigned in three projects that has issues regarding storm water management. I was able to perform hydrology modeling and evaluate different remedial measure. I was able to visit the sites and make preliminary survey. I have learned a lot about writing preliminary and final reports in addition to the technical aspect.

The people I work with have be phenomenal in teaching me how to make things done.
