Researcher Summary

I work in a variety of areas related to civil and environmental engineering.  I have extensive experience in landfill engineering, and conduct some research on leachate and gas emissions.
I have conducted research on groundwater through study of market approaches and also for research into groundwater quality.
I have research interests in engineering systems analysis methods, particularly tools used to analyse decisions, risk, uncertainty, and system properties (e.g., resilience).
I have research interests in the analysis of engineering failures and also in engineering education.

Subject Area: Disciplines

Research Groups

Future Research

  • landfill gas emissions
  • dynamic systems analysis of organisations after disasters
  • phosphorus recovery from waste
  • non-dimensional decision analysis
  • engineering education
