The Victoria Chapters of the Project Management Institute (PMI) and Engineers and Geoscientists BC (EGBC) are jointly hosting a Professional Development event with guest speaker Dr. Tania Insua, Program Manager – Ocean Analytics at Ocean Networks Canada (ONC).

Dr. Insua will showcase recent advances in the science of detecting and modeling tsunamis pioneered by ONC.  Their latest technological advances in in the field of tsunami measuring, monitoring and reporting have been instrumental in developing multi-system, real-time detection and warning methods for tsunami waves of all types. Refined geophysical seismic research, improved geological information, and real-time tsunami detection are combined into enhanced predictive wave models. These advanced wave analysis and ONC’s own leading-edge, run-up inundation models, which unlike most other models also include effects of built-up urban areas, lead to the development of more accurate hazard maps.  Dr. Insua and ONC are at the forefront of research and modeling of actual and predicted tsunami events.

Virtual Reality (VR) modeling developed at ONC will be on display – come experience being in Victoria during a tsunami event.


Speaker Bio


Tania L. Insua earned her bachelor in Marine Sciences at University of Vigo, Spain. She completed her Masters and PhD in Ocean Engineering at University of Rhode Island, USA. She has participated in multiple offshore drilling expeditions with the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program as a physical properties specialist and ocean engineer mostly related to climate change and deep-biosphere studies.

In her current position at Ocean Networks Canada (ONC), she is the Program Manager, Ocean Analytics in charge of the ONC Tsunami Program. This program covers multi-system detection of tsunamis with cabled observatories, source modelling, digital elevation models, wave propagation modelling and virtual reality. She also manages and participates as a technical lead in other projects and operations at ONC.


Early Bird pricing available until 4:30 PM on March 30, 2018.
