Welcome to Sustainable Geotransportation/Geoenvironmental Infrastructure (SGI) Research Group

SGI research group focuses on predominantly experimental based, applied research in geotransportation and geoenvironmental engineering including material characterization, applications, and evaluating existing and developing new design guidelines as it relates to resiliency, sustainability, waste management, and natural hazards.

The primary make-up of the SGI research group is based on geotechnical, geoenvironmental, and geological engineering disciplines but we are also proud to expand in interdisciplinary aspects to develop additional capabilities to solve complicated research problems.

The research team has strong engagement with government and industry within northern Virginia and our research outcomes rapidly find their way into practice in disciplines related to geo-engineering. Nearly all of our research activities include both undergraduate and graduate students and we strongly support diversity among our team members who come from different nationalities and ethnic backgrounds.
