Dr. Victoria Bennett is a Research Assistant Professor and manages a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) project at RPI entitled, “Development of a Multi-scale Monitoring and Health Assessment Framework for Effective Management of Levees and Flood-Control Infrastructure Systems.” Victoria has co-taught Experimental Soil Mechanics with Professor Abdoun and will teach Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering in the fall of 2013. She has expertise in field-testing and has published several papers on field instrumentation for geotechnical engineering (Machan & Bennett, 2008; Bennett et al., 2011). Victoria serves the Transportation Research Board (TRB) as Committee Secretary to the Committee on Soils and Rock Instrumentation and Communication Coordinator for the Committee on Modeling for the Design, Construction, and Management of Geosystems.
