constructed in the Denver metro area (2003-2006).
5. Led the development of a $40k tech fee proposal for Soil Mechanics lab at CSM to modernize lab with student-
friendly consolidation, triaxial and axial compression equipment. Introduced two new labs to reflect modern
practice: (1) mechanically stabilized earth wall construction; (2) field testing with light weight deflectometer
and dynamic cone penetrometer (2006-2007).
6. Led development of campus-wide IGERT graduate education program in intelligent geosystems. Co-developed
a new course on Intelligent Geosystems (SYGN 550), assisted in formal leadership/teamwork development
program, and assisted in formation of social/environmental ethics & policy Ph.D. minor (2006-present).
7. Serve as Acting Director to create multi-disciplinary Center for Underground Construction & Tunneling.
Working with colleagues in Civil, Geological and Mining Engineering, we are building undergraduate and
graduate education programs as well as growing research efforts to become a distinguished international center
of excellence in this field.
