School of Chemical Engineering
Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology
I am a geotechnical and geomechanical researcher combining aspects of sciencentific studies and pragmatic engineering to challenges in the mining Industry, particularly cave mining.
My areas of interest are:
- Geomechanical Data (Rock Strength)
- Geophysical Data (Wireline and Core Data)
- Geotechnical Hazards (Mud Rush, Air blast, Excavation Stability)
- Numerical Modelling and Data Visualisation (StopeX (FLAC3D), Paraview)
- In-situ Stress Analysis (Uncertainty and Analysis Module Development with mXrap)
