Two new experts join Fireseeds North Infrastructure
This week, Fireseeds North Infrastructure welcomes two new experts to our team. We are incredibly pleased to have Paul Anderson-Trocmé and Bartholomew Ghanney join us.
Bartholomew Ghanney is an award-winning professional statistician who earned his undergrad at the University of Ghana and his master's at the University of Manitoba with top honours. He joins our team to work in predictive analytics, mainly in road safety but also in asset management. Bartholomew has in-depth knowledge and expertise in modelling time-series count data and all aspects of regression modelling in R or any other statistical software. Just before joining our team, he was developing ground-breaking methodologies for fitting zero-inflated Poisson data, and his methods have been proven to be substantially superior to previous algorithms. Working side by side with our engineering team, Bartholomew will play a central role in the following assignments for Fireseeds North Infrastructure: development of safety performance functions, development of network screening tools, before-and-after studies to establish collision modification factors, and predictive analytics for asset deterioration modelling.
Paul Anderson-Trocmé, with 4 years of professional experience, is a transport infrastructure specialist and civil engineering graduate of McGill's B.Eng. and M.Eng. programs, where he earned many awards. He joins us after having successfully supported a massive ITS system deployment for one of Canada's largest transit agencies, while working for one of the world's top management consulting firms. Paul's specialized skill set is a perfect fit for the work of Fireseeds North, having worked in ITS, road safety, specialized research, and investment planning across Canada.
Fireseeds North Infrastructure now has a staff team of eight with a rapidly growing portfolio of engineering projects across Canada in the specialized areas of road safety, asset management, and gender mainstreaming in transport.
