Is there a doctor in the house?
You Betcha! Toronto structural engineer Cameron Ritchie is DIALOG’s newest doctor. Cam completed his PhD earlier this fall and made it official at his convocation ceremony November 8.
My thesis examines the behaviour of hollow structural sections subjected to blast loads. It included full scale testing (with real explosives!), testing in the U of T lab, and computer modelling. I have already used aspects of the results on real projects while completing a protective design internship. I hope to use my expertise and experience in protective design to add to DIALOG projects in the future.
I really enjoyed my time at DIALOG in Edmonton. Leadership there was so supportive of my desire to return to school. I always knew I’d like to work for DIALOG again. Now that Toronto is home, and I’ve grown some roots here, the Toronto studio is a logical fit. I’m very happy to be here.
We’d like to offer our sincere congratulations to Cam on this amazing accomplishment. We’re sure you’re not finished impressing us with your many talents!
