Dr Dave Roberts
Roberts’ interests are in geotechnical and rock engineering, particularly the application of non-linear numerical modelling to problems such as rockmass behaviour at ultra-depths and the rockmass response to novel mining methods.
Roberts holds a PhD in civil engineering from the University of Wales in Swansea, United Kingdom, where he worked on the implementation of rockbolts and reinforcing elements in the Elfen finite element code.
