I am the leader of Arup’s seismic team based in London, with over 30 years’ experience in civil, geotechnical and earthquake engineering. I have carried out seismic design, analysis and hazard assessments for a range of structures in the energy, infrastructure, manufacturing and humanitarian sectors around the world.

I have contributed to seismic research and development projects and have published numerous papers relating to this work. I have also participated in post-earthquake field missions to USA, Turkey, Indonesia and Chile.

I am also the Royal Academy of Engineering visiting professor in geotechnical earthquake engineering at University College London.
