Today’s infrastructure networks are...
I'm a member of the Infrastructure Advisory team at Arup. In my role, I use my geological background to investigate the risks posed by severe weather and climate change to transport infrastructure earthworks, networks and systems. Ultimately, trying to understand potential triggers, impacts, mitigation and recovery measures to ensure greater resilience of linear infrastructure networks.
Prior to joining Arup in mid-2016, I studied for a PhD at Cranfield University's School of Water, Energy and Environment. My PhD formed part of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council funded, Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC). During my PhD I gained experience in the application of geographical information systems (GIS) to answer complex environmental problems, encompassing the management of national-scale geographical data.
I have authored a number of peer-reviewed academic papers concerning the impact of ground-related hazards and climate change on infrastructure networks.
