Dr Jaime Cadena Gómez


Dr Jaime Cadena Gomez is a safety and risk engineer, currently the network fire engineer of Transurban Queensland. Jaime conducted his PhD research in the topic of fire risk assessments at the University of Queensland, Australia. His PhD research studied the current methods for quantification of fire risk and proposed an alternative methodology that aims at better informing early stages of decision-making in the building design process. Early on in his carrier he worked as a chemical process safety consultant, focusing on preventing and managing major risks, which led him to contribute to the construction of the legal framework for prevention of major industrial risks in Colombia. As a researcher, Jaime has also studied the uncertainty associated to CFD fire modelling and the subtle but important connection between chemical process safety and fire safety engineering. In his current role as network fire engineer, Jaime is responsible for maintaining and uplifting the condition of the fire systems across the tunnel network of Transurban Queensland.
