Jaya Mylvaganam is a civil /geotechnical engineer with over 16 years of industry and research experience.  He has broad experience in the design of open pits in various rock mass and hydrogeological conditions from conceptual to implementation level studies, and in civil/ mining infrastructure designs. Jaya takes the role of project manager, team leader and peer reviewer for several projects and is responsible for the study outcomes and technical reports. His experience extends into 2D/ 3D stability modelling using several programs including UDEC and FLAC for open pit and underground excavations, and also into groundwater seepage and slope depressurisation modelling. Jaya has conducted site investigations for rock mass ratings and hydrogeological behaviours, and performed extensive interpretations of geotechnical data and data calibrations using numerical models.  His experience in mine waste management includes the designs of tailings storage facilities and rock dumps, and dynamic stability modelling. As part of his PhD research, Jaya developed an experimental set-up for laboratory investigation; a mathematical model to predict the shear behaviour of infilled rock joints and undertook verification analyses using numerical modelling.
