Timothy D. StarkProfessor Timothy D. Stark has been invited to give the 2023 Martin S. Kapp Lecture to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Metropolitan Section Geo-Institute Section in New York. Stark is only the fourth faculty member from CEE to be invited to present this lecture, joining the ranks of Ralph Peck, Alfred J. Hendron Jr. and Don U. Deere.

Each year, the ASCE Metropolitan Section invites an outstanding authority in the field of soil mechanics and foundation engineering to deliver the lecture. Stark’s interdisciplinary research and teaching activities include the static and seismic stability of natural and manmade slopes such as dams, levees, floodwalls, embankments and waste containment facilities; geosynthetics and geomembranes; soil liquefied strength; and railroad geotechnics. His current research is focused on three-dimensional slope stability, soil shear strengths, heating events in waste containment facilities and drilled shaft integrity testing.

The Kapp lecture will take place in New York on January 17, 2023. Stark is also the current ASCE Geo-Institute Cross-USA Lecturer for 2022-2023.
