I am a geotechnical engineer with primary expertise in plasticity, geotechnical analysis, and the emerging field of soil-machine interaction (SMI). A major focal point of my work over the coming years is to advance the understanding of how soils are moved and shaped through interaction with man-made objects and machinery. An overarching goal is to develop rigorous, mechanics-based models for predicting soil deformation and the corresponding force requirements or reactions. See also Media and Links and Publications.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching introductory and advanced courses in geomechanics, solid mechanics, and numerical methods, including:
