RESEARCH AND INTERESTS
As a practicing Geotechnical / Geoenvironmental Engineer, my work includes design of liners and covers for waste containment facilities, remediation of contaminated sites; evaluation and mitigation of landslides; design of foundations in difficult ground conditions; ground improvement; and liquefaction mitigation. My interests include modeling and analyses of unsaturated flow, geosynthetics, design of alternative covers and liners, seismic site response, and slope stability.
