Research interests

Engineering geology Natural hazards Geomorphology


I have a breadth of experience in applying the principles of engineering geology, rock mechanics, terrain mapping, and geomorphology to linear infrastructure projects in Canada and New Zealand. My expertise includes geotechnical site investigations, geological mapping, geohazards identification, aerial photograph interpretation, and terrestrial photogrammetry. My experience includes detailed geohazard and risk assessments for resource roads, railways, transmission lines, pipelines, and run-of-the-river hydroelectric projects in both soil and rock. I have extensive experience in the application of numerical modeling techniques for assessing slope stability and landslide runout. I also am an adjunct professor in the Earth Science Department at Simon Fraser University.
