Roberta Dyck received a BSc in Civil Engineering from the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB, Canada, in 1997, and received her MASc in Civil Engineering from the University of British Columbia, Kelowna, BC, Canada, in 2011. Roberta’s PhD thesis focuses on human health risks associated with disinfection byproducts in indoor swimming pools. Her exposure and physiological models will help pool operators reduce swimmer and worker exposure to trihalomethanes. This research will also promote the development of Canadian guidelines for trihalomethanes in swimming pool water. Prior to joining the LCML, Roberta worked for seven years as a project engineer in geoenvironmental consulting for Morrow Environmental Consultants Inc. in Winnipeg, MB and Burnaby, BC. She has been registered as a Professional Engineer with the Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia since 2005.
