Dr. Angela Küpper has more than 30 years of experience in geotechnical engineering. She graduated in Civil Engineering in 1979. She worked in consulting in Brasil where she was mainly involved with hydroelectric dam projects throughout South America and with natural slope assessments and remediation. Angela obtained an M.Sc. in Geotechnical Engineering in 1983 studying constitutive models for a tropical clay for tunnelling projects.

Angela obtained a Ph.D. in Geotechnical Engineering from the University of Alberta in 1991 on the topic of design and construction of hydraulic fills and tailings dams. She spent a couple of seasons at Syncrude as part of her research. Since then, Angela has worked in all aspects of dam engineering, in slope stability and remediation, landfills, pulp and paper, risk assessments, and many mining projects (pitwall design, tailings management technologies, design and construction of tailings dams, waste dump design, mine closure). She has been in charge of large multidisciplinary projects in North America, South America and Africa.
