    Dimitrios Zekkos is a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley. Zekkos’ research focuses on infrastructure resilience, informatics, landfills, geotechnical engineering, geoenvironmental engineering, and earthquake engineering. His research approach has commonly involved designing and employing innovative experimental (in the laboratory and the field) and computational approaches that aim to provide new insights and inform improved models of earth material response to static and dynamic loads. Zekkos is a recipient of the prestigious Outstanding Innovator Award from the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering in 2015, the ASCE Arthur Casagrande Professional Development Award in 2012, the ASCE Collingwood Prize and ASCE Middlebrooks Award, among other notable achievements.
