Geological Engineer & BGC Squared Co-lead
Ethan Faber, M.Sc., P.E. (MI, IN, IL, CO), has nine years of experience with a primary focus on humanitarian engineering-based projects focused on landslide risk management with communities traditionally underrepresented in engineering design. He has done this through co-leading BGC’s philanthropic program (BGC Squared), consulting in the private sector, working in the non-profit sector, and teaching and advising graduate research at the university level. Through this work, Ethan has gained experience with geologic hazard risk assessments (focusing on life-loss based consequence estimates), geologic site investigation and characterization, and design of geological engineering structures primarily in the communities and transportation sectors.
