I am a rock mechanics specialist with experience in rock mass characterization, discontinuity characterization, numerical modeling of large rock slope failures and engineering geological field techniques. My academic background combines geomorphology and geology with rock mechanics; including experience with industry standard modeling packages such as UDEC and Phase2. I have an extensive understanding of exploration and mine development projects; having successfully completed multiple open pit design projects at the preliminary economic assessment, pre-feasibility, and feasibility levels of study.
