Mathew has a bachelor’s degree in advanced mechanical engineering from the University of Sydney and a Master of Fire Safety Engineering from the University of Western Sydney.
With over 10 years experience, Mathew has substantial experience on a wide range of projects including retail, residential, commercial and healthcare. Mathew specialises in the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software to test buildings during the design phase in order to determine the potential impacts of fire and smoke spread. By combining this type of assessment with agent based occupant evacuation modelling, Mathew is able to optimise a building design, rationalising smoke exhaust rates, number of exits and provision of other fire services whilst still providing suitable levels of fire and life safety.
Mathew is accredited as a Chartered Member of Engineers Australia (CPEng), a Registered Engineer on the National Professional Engineers Register (NPER) in Fire Safety, a C10 Accredited Certifier (Fire Safety Engineering Compliance) in NSW and a Registered Professional Engineer (Fire Engineering) of Queensland (RPEQ).
