PhD Candidate Matthew Tsang is joining us from the University of Queensland, Australia - School of Engineering for a month working on the application of Synthetic Rock Mass numerical models to estimate rock mass strength for coal mine slope stability. In addition to his own PhD work, Matthew has jumped in with both feet to a number of site visit and networking opportunities. He is looking forward to attending the Energi Simulation Summit in Calgary on October 2 and 3, 2018.
