With more than 15 years of experience in the mining industry as a geotechnical engineer, Ellen’s main areas of expertise includes underground production geotechnical engineering in high-stress environments including yielding and dynamic conditions, seismic hazard management and the development of systems, and ground-support design for both static and dynamic conditions. Ellen has completed rock mechanics studies including: underground geotechnical mapping, structural data analysis, rockmass classifications, and the development of geotechnical models. Ellen’s expertise also extends to open-pit geotechnical studies of site investigations, geotechnical core logging and mapping, rockmass characterization studies, and slope-stability analysis.
