Ismet Canbulat

Kenneth Finlay Chair of Rock Mechanics
Head of School

Prof. Ismet Canbulat is a mining engineer with over 25 years of experience in research, consultancy, management, on-site and academia. He has BSc, MSc and PhD degrees from Istanbul Technical University, University of the Witwatersrand and University of Pretoria respectively. In South Africa, he worked for the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), where he was a Research Area Manager in Rock Engineering Programme. After 10 years in research he moved to consultancy and worked for Groundwork Consulting and later for Golder Associates (formerly Strata Engineering) in Australia as a Principal Engineer. In 2008, Ismet joined Anglo American Coal in Brisbane, where he was the Principal Geotechnical Engineer for underground operations until November 2014. He was responsible for leading the development of geotechnical engineering standards, procedures and the best practices, supporting operations in mine design and green field projects at concept, pre-feasibility and feasibility levels, providing technical support for business risk management, technical support for design and selection of mining equipment as well as implementation of new technologies and research findings at operations. Since 2014, Ismet is Professor and Kenneth Finlay Chair of Rock Mechanics at the School of Mining Engineering, UNSW Sydney.

Ismet’s principle research interests and expertise lie in rock mechanics theory and application, ground control and rock mass classification, design of pillar and roof support systems, numerical modelling in addition to other areas in mining engineering including mine design, layout selection and geotechnical impact assessment, risk management and advanced risk based design and evaluation, ground stability aspects of mine closure and subsidence assessment.

Ismet is a Fellow of the Institute of Engineers Australia and the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and, a member of the Australian Geomechanics Society, International Society for Rock Mechanics, Society of Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration.

Ismet is an author and co-author of numerous technical papers published in refereed journals and conference proceedings; peer-reviewed research reports submitted to funding organisations in Australia and South Africa; and consultancy reports submitted to over 60 metalliferous and coal mines.

Ismet is a recipient of a number of international and national awards; including the SME’s Syd S. Peng Ground Control Award, the Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Gold Medal, BBUGS’ Geotechnical Practitioner of the Year Award.
