Professional Experience

1981 - 1989 : Cadet Civil Engineer
Employed at Lake Macquarie City Council as a Cadet Civil Engineer. The majority of this period was spent working in the Design Section primarily in the areas of urban road, rural road and drainage design. Several major flood studies were undertaken as well as the investigation and stabilisation of several large landslides in urban areas.

1989 : Senior Engineer
Employed at Lake Macquarie City Council on a part-time basis at the Senior Engineer Grade 15 level to assess the hydraulic aspects of several proposed developments.

1989 - 1991 : Tutor
Employed on a part-time basis to tutor fluid mechanics and structural mechanics in the Department of Civil Engineering and Surveying at The University of Newcastle.

1989 - Feb 1992 : Post-graduate Research Student
Undertook Doctor of Philosophy studies in the Department of Civil Engineering and Surveying at The University of Newcastle. This work involved the development of methods for predicting the discharge in compound channels and an extensive experimental program examining the stage-discharge relationship in compound channels.

Feb 1992 - Mar 93 : Research Assistant
Employed as a Research Assistant by the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom working on the River Blackwater project which was jointly funded by the National Rivers Authority and the Science and Engineering Research Council. This project involved a detailed examination of the proposed diversion of the River Blackwater near Farnborough in Hampshire to assess the hydraulic capacity of a more environmentally satisfactory river channel design. Apart from solving a specific problem this study also had much broader aims which were to gain some insight into the complex interaction between the main channel its associated floodplains that results from the use of a doubly sinuous compound channel. The project involved the construction of a 600m2 model at HR Wallingford and the undertaking of an extensive experimental program to determine the stage-discharge relationship for the river for various roughness conditions and floodplain crossfalls. The model results were also used to extend previous work carried out on straight and meandering compound channels at HR Wallingford. The study also included the examination of flow velocity and direction and boundary shear stress at various locations within the model along with flow visualisation experiments. Analysis of the experimental data and the preparation of reports for the funding bodies was also carried out.

Mar. 1993 - Oct 93 : Post-graduate Research Student
Returned to The University of Newcastle to complete Doctor of Philosophy studies and submit thesis for examination.

Nov. 1993 - Jun. 95 : Research Associate
Employed as a Research Associate in the Department of Civil Engineering and Surveying at The University of Newcastle undertaking research into the joint probability problem associated with the interaction of freshwater floods with variable ocean water levels. This project has lead to the development of an approximate method of dealing with the joint probability problem using the total probability theorem which may help rationalise current approaches to this problem. To aid in the use of the total probability theorem it is important to identify the events which contribute significantly to joint probability. The initial phase of the project involved the development of an unsteady flow model of a river floodplain connected to the ocean to test the sensitivity of the various inputs. The current phase of the study is involved with testing the accuracy of the approximations made in the total probability theorem approach using Monte-Carlo simulation. This period also allowed time to further develop and begin publishing research on compound open channels. Collaborative work on flow in meandering compound channels was continued with Professor Robert Sellin at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom.
