Geological Engineering

Faculty work in areas that are related to the potential for natural and man-made hazards as well as the interaction of human-built infrastructure with earth materials. Specific projects include modern computational methods for debris flow modeling and glacial lake outburst hazard prediction, stability and rock mechanical properties in underground mines and other civil infrastructure, and hydrologic flow and conductivity of materials in municipal solid waste systems.
