Bio: Kirill Bobko was born in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia where obtained his first Master degree in Civil Engineering in 2013 at State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering (NNGASU) with specialization in foundation design. After graduation continued to work as Civil Engineer in Thyssen Krupp Industrial Solutions (RUS) for almost three years. These years was a bright time full of memorable projects mostly associated with design of industrial units, steel frame analysis and design of various types of foundations. Working in TKIS (RUS) he learned professional practise and got first experience in geotechnical design. Later participated in half-year business trip in Germany collaborating within international team. During 2016-2018 was in M.Sc (Civil Eng.) program at University of Manitoba under supervision of Dr. Pooneh Maghoul where studied problems of heat transfer in soils. Research was focused on numerical modelling and analysis of energy performance of the building. Conducted a series of field work and lab tests evaluating thermal properties of soil. Kirill is a current student member of Canadian Geotechnical Society. At spare time prefers to travel with family.
