Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) - email supervisor to discuss availability.

I believe "if we want to make progress fast, we can do it alone; If we want to go far, we have to do it together". I am a multidisciplinary design engineer with the goal of increasing value and productivity while lowering operational costs and saving the planet. I have a diverse technical background and a passion for blending academic knowledge into real-world complex optimisation problems to conduct research with impact and facilitate collaboration between academic research and industrial applications.

My PhD was part of the Integrated Mining Consortium, in which we dealt with real-world problems to improve mining technologies and solve a common problem in stockpile management. I am currently a researcher at the Mine Operational Vehicles Electrification (MOVE) project funded by the Future Battery Industries Cooperative Research Centre (FBICRC) and led by the University of Adelaide. Our project provides the Australian mining industry with a suite of decision-making tools and guidelines that will aid their transition towards battery-supported vehicles and associated stationary machinery in their mining operations.
