Managing Director, Geospatial Research Ltd.

Richard has more than 30 years of commercial geoscience experience, including several hundred days of geological fieldwork spanning five continents and taking in many areas of petroleum exploration worldwide. Commercial expertise includes applied structural analysis, fractured reservoir characterisation and application of geospatial technologies in onshore and offshore sectors, particularly GIS, lidar laser-scanning, 3-D visualisation and virtual fieldtrip technology.

Following a Ph.D. in structural geology and tectonics, current research includes modelling of fracture systems, fault and fold geometries and processes, and structural analysis in areas involving complex 3-D deformation.
