FRANCINE SORENSEN – Senior Geographical Information Services (GIS) and Modeling Geologist
Hailing from Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, Francine has been working at Bisha since 2013 assisting the exploration team. She holds a bachelors’ degree in Geology as well as a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) certificate. She previously worked for a geology consulting firm in Canada where she provided resources and GIS services for the mining industry. Francine spends her free time running, reading fiction, and playing crib. During rotational visits back home, she spends time with her husband, cat, and dog – photos of whom are all proudly displayed in her office. Her favourite aspect about working at Bisha is she feels she is helping out the country by training local people in the various applications of GIS and witnessing first-hand the results of increased Eritrean capacity in this field.
