A graduate geologist (MSc(Hons) Geol), working within the ground engineering sector. I have a background in structural geology and fault mechanics, having previously studied at Victoria University of Wellington. I have a passion for earth science and the environment.
Low-angle normal faulting within Woodlark Rift, Eastern Papua New Guinea. Ongoing work is to document rider block abandonment atop the Mai'iu fault, and Mohr-Coulomb modelling of this process.
