Tarick is a civil engineer and hydrologist specializing in 2D hydraulic modeling and river restoration design. Tarick’s technical expertise include fluvial hydrodynamic modeling, FEMA floodplain mapping, drainage studies, hydraulic structure design, sediment transport modeling, salmonid habitat restoration, and watershed modeling. He has worked extensively on habitat restoration and hydraulic river modeling projects located throughout California in collaboration with state and federal agencies as well as environmental non-profits and local water managers. Tarick is also experienced in directing field data collection efforts. He has led aerial data collection missions using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), in addition to traditional topographic surveying and stream gaging efforts. When he’s not in the office, he’s most likely backpacking in the Sierras or trying out a new recipe he learned while traveling abroad.

Working with a team of passionate, smart people to solve complex environmental problems that often have no obvious solution.

Traveling off the beaten path, backpacking in the Sierras, honing my amateur chef skills, learning new languages, and playing pick-up rugby at the local park.

Traveling to a remote corner of the world and learning about unique cultures.
