Over the years, he has been a strong advocate for geotechnical innovation and has contributed to many state-of-the-practice geotechnical applications in ground improvement, including the first use of a combination of stone columns and earth reinforcement in a wharf structure, the first use of mechanically stabilized backfill underwater, the first use of stone columns in a cellular structure, the use of jet grouting and fracture grouting to support tunnel construction under active railroad tracks, the use of a variety of lightweight fill materials, and the densification and chemical stabilization of organic soils for use in roadway construction.
