Davide Elmo

Associate Dean, Students and Professional Development
Professor, Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering

Since early in his career at UBC, Dr. Davide Elmo has shown considerable interest in the student experience. As undergraduate advisor in his department, he developed systems for tracking student performance, including early identification of students facing academic difficulties. He was also instrumental in streamlining, modernizing and simplifying the mining undergraduate curriculum, as well as aspects of the graduate curriculum.

He has also contributed to the ongoing challenge of recruiting students into mining engineering, developing highly original student presentations for APSC 100 and organizing activities for in-person and online Applied Science Open House events. This has resulted in more engagement and interest from high school and first year students.
