I am a civil engineer with broad interests in mechanics, plasticity, soils, 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 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:
