Professor David Muir Wood FREng, FRSE

Emeritus Professor of Geotechnical Engineering, University of Dundee.

Professor David Muir Wood is one of the leading geotechnical engineers of his generation. He has spent the last 40 years developing our understanding of the behaviour of soils. This, coupled with his excellent communication skills and international networking, has led to the wide adoption of this idea in advanced computational modelling of geotechnical problems. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 1998.
