Sam is a Coastal Engineer with over six years’ experience working on a wide range of mooring analysis, hydrodynamic modelling and surface water projects.

He has worked extensively on complex mooring analysis problems including multi-vessel modelling, transhipment loading operations, tug force operability assessments, Trelleborg AutoMoor and Cavitec MoorMaster applications and passing vessel studies.

His knowledge in the vessel mooring space is complemented by a background in hydrodynamic modelling with projects completed ranging from detailed single port modelling through to large scale simulation of the entire Australian coastline.
