I am the seismic business and skills leader for Arup in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. I joined Arup in 1990.

I've contributed to the development of a number of studies and guides on building design and the mitigation of earthquake and tsunami losses, as well as working on post-earthquake field missions around the globe.

In 2009, I was awarded the Shamsher Prakash prize for Excellence in Practice in Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering.
