Biography & Education

I was appointed as an Associated Professor in the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering TAMU in September 2009.


Research

My research activity in the past few years has been involved in highly trans-disciplinary projects that have allowed me to expand my research portfolio far outside conventional geomechanics.
