RESEARCH SPECIALTIES / CAREER: Summary Statement: I have extensive experience working for private engineering consultants, and local and central government engineering agencies spanning both technical design positions and in the management of projects and engineering and support staff. With over 15 years of consulting experience in the area of transportation and traffic engineering design and 3 years in the area of water, wastewater and environmental engineering I have quite varied research interests. However, my specific research interests are in the areas of highway geometrics, intersection design, aggregate materials and performance, skid resistance, crash investigations and road safety engineering but also includes infrastructure asset management and road management systems.
