Research Areas

  • sustainability and resiliency assessments
  • risk perception
  • resiliency measures
  • measuring uncertainty

My research in geotechnical engineering focusses on developing sustainable and resilient solutions for various types of problematic soils. We develop frameworks to assess resiliency and methods to improve the resiliency. Most of my research revolves around solving issues related to problematic expansive soils and the related ground improvement methods. We also develop educational materials focused on sustainability and resiliency concepts to be used in the various undergraduate civil engineering courses.


I am interested in cross-disciplinary research efforts in assessing resiliency of various infrastructures. In general, I am interested in both resiliency assessment frameworks and methods to improve resiliency.
