Professor Yves Potvin
Professor of Mining Geomechanics
Australian Centre for Geomechanics
Yves joined the Australian Centre for Geomechanics at The University of Western Australia in 1998 and was Centre Director, 2000 – 2019. Professor Potvin has published more than 100 articles and is the editor/co-editor of 14 conference proceedings and books. He has over 30 years of experience in rock mechanics and mine design and has previously held managerial positions at Mount Isa Mines, the Noranda Technology Centre and worked as a mining engineer at Noranda Mines, Gaspe Division. Yves undertakes numerous collaborative industry-focussed research projects and is presently involved with the ACG’s Ground Support Systems Optimisation Project, and the Stope Reconciliation and Optimisation Project. He currently participates in several geotechnical review boards.
Stuart Tierney
Research Assistant
Australian Centre for Geomechanics
Stuart completed a Masters of Engineering Science (mining geomechanics) at Curtin University in 2016 where his thesis in the final semester was assisted by the ACG. In February 2017 he joined the ACG as a research assistant for our mXrap Consortium and is presently undertaking a PhD in geomechanics engineering at The University of Western Australia.
Associate Professor Johan Wesseloo
Associate Professor and Director
Australian Centre for Geomechanics
Since obtaining a BEng (Civil) and MEng (Geotechnical) from The University of Pretoria, Johan has been involved in geotechnical engineering in open pit and underground environments throughout 14 countries. He commenced his career in 1998 as a geotechnical engineer at SRK Consulting in Johannesburg where his experience included open pit and underground projects in varying geotechnical conditions. In 2005 he was awarded a PhD (Geotechnical) from The University of Pretoria. Johan joined the ACG in 2007 as a Research Fellow. During his time at the ACG, Johan has been involved in research, the supervision of postgraduate students and geotechnical training. He also performs geotechnical and mining-induced seismicity reviews providing him with the valuable opportunity to visit numerous operations worldwide. Johan was instrumental in the development of the mXrap software and many of the software routines and apps available in that platform. Johan is a Fellow of The Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and the Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. He was awarded the SAIMM Gold medal in 2006 and 2016, and the SAIMM Silver Medal in 2014. In May 2019, Johan was appointed Centre Director.
Dr Kyle Woodward
Research Fellow
Australian Centre for Geomechanics
Kyle was initially associated with the ACG in 2010 through his final year research project for his undergraduate Bachelor of Engineering (Mining) degree at The University of Western Australia. Upon completion of this degree, Kyle undertook postgraduate research with the ACG which focussed on time-dependent seismic responses to mining. In late 2015, he was awarded his PhD (Civil and Resource Engineering) for his thesis entitled ‘Identification and Delineation of Mining Induced Seismic Responses’. Kyle has been involved in various ACG projects including the Mine Seismicity and Rockburst Risk Management Project and the mXrap Consortium. Kyle was project leader for the ACG Stope Reconciliation and Optimisation Research Project from 2016 to 2019. He is currently working on the next phase of this research project along with work associated with the mXrap Consortium.
