Current Research Interests

My research interests are currently based in rock mechanics, including the geological and engineering characterization of rock and rockmass systems, improved laboratory and field assessment techniques for rock characterization, advanced numerical modelling for analysis of mechanical behavior of complex ground conditions, and rock engineering for underground excavation design and open pit mine slope stability.  This work is applicable to several fields, including mining, tunnelling, and deep geological repositories for nuclear waste storage.
