Personal profile

Biography

I am a geotechnical engineer and scientist, with extensive research and industry experience, specialising in geotechnical aspects of offshore energy developments. My research focuses on the safe and sustainable development of the world’s offshore energy reserves, particularly offshore renewable wind and wave energy, but also the depleting supply of offshore hydrocarbons.

I have significant experience in developing and managing large multi-party research programmes, with a particular focus on the transfer of university developed technology into industry practice. This research has been supported by $24.2M in funding, $18.6M in competitive research grants and $5.6M in industry-sponsored research, leading to 150 publications, 41 industry commissioned technical reports and 2 international patents. My research has informed the design of offshore infrastructure, been codified in design guidelines and in industry utilised software, and has been transferred to industry through commercialisation contracts.

I am the Director of the National Geotechnical Centrifuge Facility (NGCF), a flagship research infrastructure facility for the university that is globally recognised as setting and maintaining the highest standards for geotechnical centrifuge modelling. The NGCF has underpinned much of the success and impact that UWA has achieved in offshore geotechnics, and has been heavily utilised by the global offshore industry for the design of offshore infrastructure and foundations

I am the Chair of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Physical Modelling in Geotechnics (UK Institute of Civil Engineers), Associate Editor and member of the Editorial Board for Géotechnique Letters (UK Institute of Civil Engineers), and have held several positions on local and international organising committees for various international conferencs.
