Alexander Rogan is a Principal Geotechnical Engineer at PSM with over 11 years of experience working on various domestic and international mining and civil projects, undertaking hydrology and hydraulic surface water studies, structural design for tunnelling projects and geotechnical slope stability studies. He has worked across a wide range of mining and civil engineering projects in Australia, Africa, South America and Southeast Asia.
Alex’s primary area of expertise includes surface water hydrology and hydraulic engineering design and site investigation and tunnel structural design.
Alex has extensive experience undertaking flood, erosion and water balance hydrology and hydraulic studies in areas ranging from the arid region of Australia, including the Pilbara, through to high rainfall equatorial environments, including PNG, Indonesia, Laos, Vietnam and Malaysia, in support of mining projects for the design of tailings dams, diversion drains, levees, waste dump closure drainage infrastructure and linear infrastructure.
Alex has worked on the detailed design of the permanent tunnel linings of numerous civil tunnel design projects within Australia, including, Westconnex – M4East, Sydney Metro City & Southwest Victoria Cross Station, Rozelle Interchange and Cross River Rail. Alex was involved in all phases of the Cross River Rail project including the tender, design phase and Construction Phase Services (CPS). His areas of special expertise include steel fibre reinforced concrete and shotcrete structures, fire design, numerical modelling and design of 3D tunnel intersections and reinforced concrete tunnels.
Alex is a Chartered engineer and Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ) in structural, geotechnical and civil fields and is passionate about using experience from all fields of civil engineering to solve challenging design and construction issues.
Alex graduated from the University of New South Wales in 2011, obtaining first class honours, the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering Water Discipline Prize and the University Medal in Civil Engineering. In 2014 he obtained his Masters of Engineering Science (Geotechnical), also from the University of New South Wales.
Alex has continued his professional development throughout his career having published academic papers and presenting at conferences on topics including hydrology, tunnel design and geotechnical case studies. In 2022 he presented an Engineers Australia technical talk on the Structural Aspects of the Cross River Rail Mined Tunnel Design. Alex is an active member of the Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS) and the Australian Tunnelling Society (ATS) and is a Chartered Engineer (CPEng) and RPEQ in the fields of structural, geotechnical and civil engineering.
