I lead Arup’s London Geotechnics team which comprises over 100 geotechnical engineers and specialists from a range of disciplines including geology, seismology and hydrogeology.

I am a civil engineer with over 20 years’ experience of civil, geotechnical and tunnel engineering both in the UK and overseas. I have been involved at all stages of construction projects, from conception and feasibility through to detailed design, and have acted as technical advisor to financial institutions and insurers. My recent roles have been leading multi-disciplinary design teams on major engineering projects such as the Thames Tideway Tunnel, working for teams of UK and international contractors.
