Dr. Zekkos is an Associate Professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Michigan. He specializes in geoenvironmental engineering with a focus on solid waste mechanics and energy from waste, and in natural hazard assessment, with a focus on earthquakes and landslides. He has been developing novel experimental setups in the laboratory and the field to collect data that provide new insights into material response to a broad range of environmental conditions and stressors. Most recently, he has been using sensor-equipped robotic platforms to document  infrastructure field response. He has published more than 100 scientific publications and his research work has been recognized by several awards including the Middlebrooks Award, Collingwood Prize and Casagrande Award by ASCE.
