Faculty of Science, Health, Education and Engineering

+61-7-5459-4576 568 Mountain View Road Maleny QLD 4552 Australia Field scientist and engineer

I specialise in the remote or in situ assessment of remote areas. Founded upon my broad training in oceanography, glaciology and engineering, I continue to stimulate advances in research in the field of AUV development for polar applications.

In 2014 I presented a paper to the International Conference on Radio-glaciology on the use of UAV-mounted Ground Penetrating Radar for remote radio-glaciology. I am currently supervising a PhD student who is developing a UAV-mounted Software Defined Radio (SDR) Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) for use in hostile polar environments. This device will also be adaptable to sea ice assessment.

I am currently supervising numerous Honours students who are developing innovative bespoke instrumentation for the physical assessment of polar water masses:

One is developing an autonomous depth-sounder that when released en masse can provide real- time Lagrangian bathymetric information,

Another is developing a bespoke autonomous CTD that can deploy/recover at defined intervals allowing autonomous profiling of water masses, and finally

Another is developing a bespoke cheap and lightweight Doppler radar system that can be used to monitor the movement of ice sheets and sea ice.

Additionally, I am interested in the strategic geopolitical implications of a warming Arctic.

Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) particularly in frozen geomaterials, geohazards, snow mechanics, snow physics, GPR, polar oceanography, alpine glaciology and hydrology, cold regions engineering, polar traverse logistics, polar infrastructure, light-weight scientific expeditions, development of Remote or Autonomous Vehicles (RAVs) for remote area site investigation, climate change adaptation.
