Johan has been involved in geotechnical engineering since 1998, with experience in both underground and open pit environments. Johan obtained a BEng (Civil), MEng and PhD (Geotechnical) from The University of Pretoria, South Africa and is Fellow of the Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. He started his career as a geotechnical engineer with SRK Consulting, South Africa. In 2007, Johan joined the Australian Centre for Geomechanics, where he led and completed the ACG’s High Resolution Seismic Monitoring in Open Pit Mines project and the Mine Seismicity and Rockburst Risk Management. Johan has an interest in the rock engineering aspects of mine-induced seismicity and developed several procedures and methods for seismic analysis for rock engineering purposes and mining seismic hazard assessment methods, which are integrated into mXrap Apps.
