Research Group

The research group’s interest includes understanding the complete response of geosystems and making improvements in their design to make them more feasible, economical, resilient, and sustainable: which involves carrying out multiscale experiments to understand the mechanisms, developing validated computational tools, developing simplified procedures to translate research to practice, and finally development of sensing technologies for performance monitoring, anomaly detection, and development of early warning systems. The efforts are towards “Smart Geotechnics,” where innovative design, sensing technologies, and computational tools are integrated to make the geosystem’s design and performance more informed, feasible, economical, resilient, and sustainable.
