Welcome to Geotechnical Modeling and Innovation Research Group at UNH

Our research group performs research in geotechnical engineering and geomechanics, focusing on the effects of soil moisture on the response of soil-strcuture systems under hydromechnaical and climatic extreme stressors such as earthquakes and floods. The primary approach of our reserach group is to undertsand the underlying mechanics of such priblems through geotechnical modeling and establishing innivative solutions. You can find more information about the research projects, products, and team mebers on this website.
