Seth joined GRI in May 2014 as a staff engineer. He received his PhD in Civil Engineering with a geotechnical emphasis from Oregon State University. For his PhD research, Seth conducted reliability-based analyses of several types of deep foundation elements at the ultimate and serviceability limit states in consideration of physically meaningful lower-bound resistances. Prior to graduate school, Seth worked as a field engineer on several large-scale bridge projects in Louisiana, performing dynamic and static load testing and conducting capacity estimation analyses on driven piles and drilled shafts. As a staff engineer, he works under the close direction of a project engineer or principal and is responsible for completing subsurface explorations, providing construction observation services, conducting laboratory testing of soil and rock, and performing engineering analyses for a variety of projects.
