Professor, UBC Civil Engineering
Dr. Staub-French is a Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of British Columbia. An active proponent of the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM)—a digital process for modeling the spatial, functional, and contextual dimensions of a construction project—Sheryl researches and develops tools and techniques to better support multi-disciplinary decision processes in the increasingly complex field of construction coordination. Over the past 15 years she has contributed more than 50 papers in leading journals and conferences in BIM and topics related to the technological and organizational issues associated with its implementation. She is also the inaugural holder of the Goldcorp Professorship for Women in Engineering and Director of the eng•cite program (www.engcite.ca), which develops and delivers a targeted recruitment strategy for UBC Engineering that aims to increase the number of women enrolled in its programs to 50% by 2020.
