I’m a Geotechnical Principal with over 26 years’ experience in geotechnical consulting in Australia and overseas. I have extensive experience across major civil, mining, LNG, slope works, road, rail and tunnel projects.  

My areas of specialisation are predominantly in design, construction, site supervision and project management with particular focus on soil and rock mechanics, slope and earth retaining structures, underground engineering works, geotechnical interpretation and assessment and constructability reviews.

As a technical leader my success is driven by my ability to provide exceptional technical solutions that align with my clients and stakeholders’ requirements. My ability to collaborate on all levels ensures I deliver the highest quality, risk managed solutions on-time and within budget.  

I have authored more than 11 technical papers for journals and conferences and have presented at many professional seminars to share my expertise and knowledge. I also enjoy mentoring young professionals where I can also share my experiences and industry know-how. 

I have most recently worked on the Transport Networks Reconstruction Program for the Department of Transport and Main Roads in Queensland ($924M) and the first Desalination Plant in Hong Kong.

It is an exciting time to be joining Coffey and working with our team to proactively make a difference for our clients by providing high quality, technical excellence and smart solutions across multiple projects throughout Australia.
