Bio/Research

His research is split into two main components: industry driven problems, and fundamental work. He maintains close ties with industry-based rock mechanics practitioners as this helps in the identification of common problems that are the drivers for practical research. However, many problems cannot be solved using current techniques and require a more fundamental approach. Therefore, a significant portion of his current research falls into the category of basic earth science (he cross-appointed to the Department of Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering at Queen’s, and is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Earth Sciences at Carleton University). He is particularly interested in the effects of geological structures on stress fields, and also mining-induced seismicity.
