Tryana Garza-Cruz

Senior Geomechanics Engineer

Dr. Garza-Cruz is a geomechanics engineer with a background in mechanical engineering and numerical modeling. She has experience in the application of numerical models to assess the stability of mining excavations, surface subsidence, stope-back behavior, re-evaluation of underground mining method, primary fragmentation, as well as to understand the creep behavior of excavations in frozen ground. She has applied numerical models to provide recommendations on mine design criteria (pillar, room, stope and panel dimensions), as well as regional barrier-pillar and crown-pillar dimensions, sequencing, and set back of infrastructure and access.
