Personal profile

Biography

I am a geotechnical engineer working on offshore renewable and Oil&Gas sectors. My work has been primarily focused on offshore geotechnics including offshore foundations & anchors design, offshore wind farm verification, soil parametric study, Earthquake analysis, advanced numerical modelling, physical modelling and geotechnical laboratory experiments.

I completed my PhD at the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems (COFS) at UWA in 2019. During my PhD research, I investigated and unlocked the changing seabed strength and stiffness due to cyclic remoulding and consolidation, and developed a new critical state-inspired model to capture whole-life soil behaviours.
