About Me

I am a Senior Lecturer in Accident Investigation. I joined CQU in 2015 to assist in the Transport and Safety Sciences department focusing on accident investigation. My previous role was with the South Australian OHS regulator, SafeWork SA. My role as Team Leader in the Investigation Team enables me to pass on many years of investigative skills to students in both undergraduate and postgraduate streams.

I have interests in introducing the latest technologies used in accident investigation.  These include 3D scanning, use of drones, photogrammetry and virtual reality.


My background consists of a varied range of experiences. I grew up in a medium sized farming and earth-moving family business where I learnt to operate various pieces of plant and equipment, as well as various agricultural activities. I maintained close contact with the business while I was undertaking other vocations.  I was also a board member of this business and chairman for some time.  I am a qualified mining and engineering surveyor which saw me undertake some major road and construction projects in South Australia.  I then moved into the VET sector as a survey technician and casual lecturer in surveying.  I then moved into sales of surveying equipment, holding the position of SA/NT State Manager. I then returned to the VET sector as a lecturer in surveying.  I then became an Inspector with the South Australian OHS regulator, working my up to Team Leader/Acting Manager of the Investigations unit.  I have undertaken many investigations of workplace accidents where I was responsible for collecting evidence and preparing briefs of evidence for the Magistrates & Coroner's courts.  I have also held a position on a board of a a not-for-profit RTO.
