Society for Underwater Technology Houston


I retired from BP in 2015 after 16 yrs of service. I am now working for the Jukes Group, a multidisciplinary company primarily focusing on offshore energy services. Prior to working for BP I worked for Exxon Production Research (14 years), McClelland Engineers (2 years) and th US Geological Survey (3 years). My background is geotechnical engineering. Early on in my career I focused on offshore geohazard issues with work on wave-seafloor interaction and integrated offshore site investigations. Later on I became an advocate of centrifuge model testing to advance problems related to foundation engineering, pipelines, and risers. I head the API/ISO committee sub-committee on pipelines and risers and am a member of the ASCE/COPRI committee on renewable energy. Most recently I have become interested in life extension issues related to foundations, pipelines and risers. This work includes improved methods to deter related mine fatigue and consideration of high damping levels for problems to pipeline slugging and spans
