Earl Magsipoc

PhD Student

Biography

Earl joined the group in 2017 after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a BASc in Civil Engineering. He completed his MASc with the group in 2019 and is currently working on his PhD. Earl’s research is focused on alternative interpretations of the surface roughness of rock. He is currently investigating the link between surface roughness and the fracture mechanisms as the surface is created.
