Curriculum Vitae (CV)

Steven Chuo is a Scientific Assistant at the Infrastructure Management Group (IMG). His research work focuses on data and process analysis to enable digitalized railway intervention planning.

Steven received his BASc in Civil Engineering with Honours at the University of Waterloo in 2018, along with an Option in Management Sciences and a Certificate in Structural Engineering. During his undergraduate studies he participated in the co-operative program, accumulating two years of professional experience in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry from both private and public sectors.

Over the course of his master's research program at the University of Waterloo, he developed robust discrete-event simulation models of the prefabrication process of pipe spool assembly. The goal of his research was to reduce rework associated with traditional fabrication processes in the construction industry, and to improve worker productivity and overall system efficiency. He received his MASc in 2020.

Prior to join­ing the IMG, Steven worked in risk con­sult­ing for AE­COM Canada, act­ing as an ad­visor for AEC pro­jects in the area of risk man­age­ment, in­clud­ing but not lim­ited to con­duct­ing formal risk as­sess­ments, de­vel­op­ing and or­gan­iz­ing ac­tion­able risk mit­ig­a­tion strategies, as well as provid­ing de­cision sup­port for agree­ments between pro­ject stake­hold­ers. Pro­jects he worked on in­clude rail­way safety and risk man­age­ment, as well as pro­gram man­age­ment of rail­way in­fra­struc­ture ex­pan­sion.
