Dr. K.S. Kalenchuk has over 15 years of experience in geotechnical and geomechanical engineering and has been with MDEng for over 8 years. Dr. Kalenchuk has extensive experience in underground mining, operational rock engineering, and ground control and is an expert in high-end numerical modelling, with particular skills in developing calibrated models capable of reproducing rock mass behaviour as observed through field studies and monitoring instrumentation. She also has expertise in slope mechanics (natural and engineered slopes), particularly large-scale rock slopes. Dr. Kalenchuk is qualified to provide due-diligence and third party reviews for geotechnical design and numerical modelling studies.
