Bio: Joseph Webb
My name is Joe Webb.
I am a 25 year old graduate student in Civil and Environmental
Engineering. My graduate thesis research
centers around retrofitting culverts while taking into account biological
effects, namely the passage of fish through these stream crossings. The emphasis of my studies over the past 2
years has been culvert hydraulics and I am grateful for the opportunity to
learn more about this subject. I have
very little Spanish-speaking experience, only what I picked up playing soccer
in a Mexican-American operated club team near
I believe that my greatest strengths as they relate to this project are two-fold: I have an advanced understanding of culvert hydraulics, and I am eager to immerse myself in other cultures and try to understand and appreciate their similarities and differences from my culture. I believe that my greatest weakness with respect to this project is my inability to communicate effectively in the Spanish language. I hope that this weakness will become less and less pronounced as this project continues.
