ABSTRACT

Bob will be chatting on his research, teaching and vocational interests, and the benefits not only to students but also to the professor! He will cover a potpourri of ongoing research utilizing graduate and undergraduate students in the Las Vegas Basin, completed research in underground rock masses in the Carlin trend mines, and earlier research on volcano hazards in North and South America. These topics will be interspersed with earlier escapades where outcomes were more uncertain.

BIOGRAPHY

Professor of Geological Engineering at UNR, registered PE in Nevada, Chartered Civil Engineer in UK and EU, PG in State of Washington. Research interests, design of surface and underground excavations, and geohazards. Prior to UNR worked in the private sector for 6 years.
