I joined UC Davis in 2016, after finishing my post-doc and graduate school at Georgia Tech. My research interests include soil-structure interface behavior, biogeotechnics, micromechanics of granular media, and deep foundations. I strive to employ a variety of tools, such as custom-made and conventional laboratory experiments, discrete- and continuum-based numerical simulations, and physical modeling using geotechnical centrifuges, as to approach a given research topic from different angles and spatial scales.
