Tom Chingas graduated with a Bachelor's in Civil Engineering from the University of New Hampshire in 2013 and secured a job for a private civil engineering consulting firm in New Hampshire. He has returned to academia to pursue a Master's in Civil Engineering with a focus on water resources. He is originally from New Hampshire and enjoys exploring: the backcountry, deep untracked snow, moderate climbing, and high alpine environments.
Ricki Garden graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. Before finding her eventual way to the Rocky Mountains, she spent time in Washington state working as a structural engineer for Boeing, where her free time exploring the streams and rivers of the Cascades shifted her career focus to ensuring the health of our waterways. She has since worked for the U.S. Forest Service in various roles, including as a hydrologic technician, forestry technician, and a wildland fire fighter. More recent time spent in the private sector as a practicing River Engineer found her working on projects in Colorado and New Mexico covering a gamut of river restorations, whitewater enhancements, and floodplain analyses. So that she may better protect this resource that holds her passion, she made the move to Bozeman to further her education in Ecohydraulics.
