Guest Lecturer


Dr. Krishna Reddy , Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Director of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering Laboratory University of Illinois, Chicago (UIC).

Dr. Krishna Reddy received his Ph.D. from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. He is a professional engineer in the State of Illinois, and he has worked as civil engineer and project manager in consulting engineering companies for several years, with involvement in several major projects dealing with landfills, contaminated sites, and groundwater flow and contaminant transport modeling. Dr. Reddy teaches various undergraduate and graduate geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering courses and has developed and taught several geoenvironmental engineering courses, including Environmental Geotechnology, Environmental Remediation Engineering, and Design of Landfills and Impoundments. Dr. Reddy's research expertise includes remediation of contaminated sites, waste containment systems, and waste material characterization and reuse. Dr. Reddy has published over 150 technical papers on various topics in geoenvironmental engineering. He is also the co-author of the book Geoenvironmental Engineering: Site Remediation, Waste Containment and Emerging Waste Management Technologies published by John Wiley.

Dr. Reddy is a member of ASCE, NGWA and other professional organizations. He is an active member of the ASCE Geoenvironmental Engineering Committee. Dr. Reddy has been invited as keynote speaker at several international workshops and conferences, such as GeoMO 2012. He has received several awards and honors for excellence in teaching, research, and professional service.

Dr. Reddy currently teaches a course with the objective to provide the essential knowledge required for the siting, design, construction and monitoring of landfills. He presents both fundamental and practical aspects in this study. Elements of this course and other material will be presented in GeoMO 2012.
