I'm Business Developer, PhD Researcher and Mining Engineer interested in developing underlying technologies for monitoring and optimising mining companies. Currently, I am member of Camborne School of Mine Research Group, which is focused on developing new technology trends for mining industry.

Over the last 10 years, I have held responsibilities in Operational Management, Cost Control and Due Diligences Analysis. I have experience of working with different mining methods such as block caving, sublevel stoping, open-pits, and quarries.

In my PhD, I've gotten deeper understanding of using programming languages. Employing this knowledge, I've been able to produce advanced analysis with data collected by sensing systems designed and developed in University of Exeter.
