Industrial Experience Summary
I have more than 15 years of experience in oil and gas industry (incl. Subsea, off-shore and on-shore) as well as other industries in issue such as  fracture mechanics, forensic engineering, integrity, corrosion management, FEED, design and materials selection, both in Australia and overseas. With a background in Metallurgy and Materials Science and Engineering, I have experience in weld inspection, mechanical failure assessment (HISC, SCC, SSCC, MICSCC) microbial corrosion treatment, biocide/inhibitor selection and application and employment of CRA, CP design, coating evaluation  for both sour and sweet corrosion conditions.
