Matthew was awarded BEng (hons) in Automotive Engineering at University of Bolton in 2007 and MSc in Civil Engineering at Coventry University in 2011. Working as design engineer for Charcon Tunnels division of Tarmac Pre-cast Concrete (2008 – 2011) he was responsible for structural assessment of shaft and tunnel linings, design of shaft cover and landing structures, site support, remediation works and conditional surveys. Working as tunnel engineer at Halcrow (2011-present) on the National Grid cable replacement tunnel scheme project, Matthew is responsible for FE modelling of SCL and permanent in-situ lining and base plug monolith structures incorporating tunnel portals within access shafts. The project has an emphasis on value engineering through innovation. These objectives are achieved by accurately modelling most components in FE environment and continually refining the design working closely with the contractors.


With EPSRC, Halcrow and Tubelines support Matthew joined the Geotechnical Research Group at Cambridge in 2012. He is affiliated to Queens’ College, reading for a PhD in Civil Engineering. Having a keen interest in structural design in the field of geotechnics he will research the behavioural trends of cast iron tunnels in London.
