"I am a geotechnical engineer, which means that my research concerns the behavior of soils. This has many applications, from energy to transportation."Lindsay Ivey-Burden, Senior Research Associate
Dr. Ivey-Burden joined the Engineering Systems and Environment Department's Civil and Environmental Engineering program at the University of Virginia in January 2012. Her research and teaching interests include geotechnical engineering, foundations engineering, solid waste management, risk analysis in infrastructure systems, geotechnical earthquake engineering, and geophysical testing techniques. Dr. Ivey-Burden’s research methods vary widely, ranging from theoretical systems modeling to a combination of laboratory and field investigations.
Dr. Ivey-Burden is also the managing director for the Mid-Atlantic Transportation Sustainability University Transportation Center (MATS UTC). The center serves the Mid-Atlantic region through applied research, education, workforce development, and technology transfer focused on environmental sustainability in transportation. The center was also named a Beyond Traffic Innovation Center by the Department of Transportation in 2017.
Dr. Ivey-Burden is involved in ASCE GeoInstitute, the Transportation Research Board (TRB), Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI), and is a National Science Foundation (NSF) ENHANCE Fellow.
