Involved in site characterization, geotechnical and geotechnical earthquake engineering analysis and design, and static and dynamic laboratory soil testing (isotropic and anisotropic consolidated triaxial compression tests, static and cyclic direct simple shear tests, incremental/constant rate of strain consolidation tests, and bender element tests for shear wave velocity measurements) and interpretation.

"Growth of engineering science has not reduced the need for judgement. What we can calculate enhances our judgement, allows us to make better judgements, permits us to arrive at better engineering solutions" (Ralph Peck 1980).
