What is your name?
My name is Albert Cabrejo (Albert Giovanni Cabrejo Lievano). I am the Global Practice Lead – Geotechnical Advisory at GroundProbe.
How long have you been with GroundProbe?
What makes your job unique?
I contribute to the technology and associated education required by geotechnical engineers worldwide to manage safety risks and make informed decisions. Most importantly, I play a part in the safety and preservation of life for the mine workers and communities, working under the surveillance of our technologies.
Can you tell us about yourself?
I am a Civil Engineer who studied at the National University of Colombia. When I was 17 years old, beginning my engineering studies, I was mentored by Geotechnical Engineers who consulted in civil and geotechnical operations.
I joined GroundProbe in 2009 as a Senior Geotechnical Engineer; since then, it has been a blast! GroundProbe has allowed me to visit many places around the world, explore many cultures, meet fantastic people, taste delicious foods, and see beautiful places and the rarest animals in the world. I’ve seen every type of open pit mine and some underground. I have participated in a few events that have changed the story of mining and helped save many people’s lives. I am humbled by the opportunity GroundProbe has given me and proud of all we have achieved together over the last 20 years.
Why do you love what you do?
What I enjoy the most is helping shape the future of innovative geotechnical monitoring technology and the opportunity to work with talented software and hardware developers who transform those ideas into reality. I have always dreamt of joining a global geotechnical team that strives for the best. Working for GroundProbe, I have fulfilled that professional dream, and the best part is that it is still happening; hopefully, it will never end.
