Martin Zaleski B.Sc., P.G., P.Geo., M.Sc., studies geological hazards – faults, earthquakes, landslides, and erosion – and how they affect the things we build. His tools are Quaternary geology, paleoseismology, structural geology, soil and rock mechanics, terrain mapping, and sedimentology. Other core focus areas are disaster resilience planning and seismic design. Martin provides his clients with risk assessments to support defensible design and policy decisions. He has worked with municipalities, First Nations, pipeline operators, road builders, and engineers designing new homes, mines, and pipelines. His work has taken him to Alaska, California, Chile, and across western Canada. Martin strives to make complicated science understandable and meaningful to his clients and public stakeholders.
