CV

Dr. Marte S. Gutierrez is the Founding Chair of Khalifa University’s Department of Civil, Infrastructure and Environmental Engineering. Before coming to Khalifa University, Professor Gutierrez was the James R. Paden Distinguished Professor at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of Colorado School of Mines. Formerly, he was Post-doctoral Fellow, Senior Engineer and Program Leader at the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute, and Associate Professor/Professor at Virginia Tech. He has held visiting professorship and researcher positions in China, Chile, France, Japan and Korea. He has published more than 185 papers in book chapters, journals and conference proceedings, and has given keynote and invited lectures at a number of conferences. He is a member of the Editorial Board of four International Journals, and a former Board Member of the U.S. Universities Council for Geotechnical Education and Research (USUCGER). He is the recipient of the 2011 Geotechnical Research Medal from UK’s Institute of Civil Engineers. Dr. Gutierrez’s main research interests are in Geomechanics, and Energy and Environmental Sustainability.
