Brief Biography

Jeffrey Oke (B.Eng, rmc, EIT) is a graduate from the Royal Military College of Canada in Civil Engineering. He is currently working towards his PhD in Geotechnical Engineering at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.

His research interests include, Geotechnical, Geomechanic, and Structural Engineering. His proposed work entails using numerical analysis and physical testing to capture the mechanics of structural members within underground excavation.
