I have recently submitted my PhD and I'm currently looking for opportunities where I am able to apply the knowledge gained during my studies to more practical experiences. I am a passionate and outgoing person who loves the outdoors, while also being a loyal and hardworking individual. I obtained my post graduate degree in Engineering and Environmental Geology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) before joining WSP Environmental as a consultant specializing in groundwater and contaminated land investigations. I later returned to UKZN to further myself and undertook my MSc and subsequent PhD in conceptual and three-dimensional numerical groundwater modelling.

Carel Haupt, a registered natural scientist, with 30+ years of experience. He has a post-graduate degree in Engineering Geology and specializes in the evaluation of groundwater potential and geohydrological mapping.

LinkedIn
With over 30 years of experience, I have worked in mining and exploration, groundwater consulting and mine de-watering. I have completed many geological projects, including gold and platinum exploration and was fortunate to be involved with the initial exploration and start-up of the ultra-deep Northam Platinum mine and the low grade/high tonnage Tarkwa Open-cast mine. Here I led a >$1 million / year diamond drilling programme at what is now a world class operation.

My groundwater consulting has exposed me to a broad spectrum of projects, including exploration and feasibility studies, developing water for urban municipalities and rural communities, developing sanitation/WASH protocols, compiling impact assessments for EIA's, assessing water quality and contamination investigations, monitoring and audits for environmental compliance and undertaking drought relief interventions etc.

Typically, my clients have included municipalities, government departments, NGO's, property developers, organised agriculture, manufacturing and industry, waste disposal contractors, renewable energy utilities and bottled water plants etc
