I’m a Senior Geotechnical Engineer with more than 10 years of experience in geotechnical design globally. I have worked primarily in foundation and retaining structures design, slope stability assessment and ground improvement. Today most of my work focuses on foundations for tall buildings and ground improvement.

I’ve worked on some of the world’s tallest towers including the Nakheel Tall Tower in Dubai, Incheon 151 Tower in South Korea, and the KL118 Tower in Malaysia. During the foundation design stage on these projects I work closely with the structural engineers to deliver innovative and cost-effective foundation design. Another large area of focus has been bridge foundation design. I've worked on some of the major current road projects in Australia and NZ – Ballina Bypass, Pacific Highway Upgrade between Tintenbar to Ewingsdale, Oxley Highway Upgrade and SH16 Causeway Upgrade in Auckland New Zealand.

Being at Coffey has meant I've been fortunate enough to work on some of the world’s tallest towers and major infrastructure projects. I've also been involved in the Coffey Senior Technical Apprentice Scheme which enables me to carry out research on topics that I am passionate about and to broaden my knowledge in different areas. It’s been incredibly satisfying to be able to apply the research outcomes in the delivery of solutions for our clients.
