Steve Perkins, Ph.D., P.E.
Steven is a Professor of Civil Engineering at Montana State University where he teaches and conducts research in the areas of geotechnical and pavement engineering. Dr. Perkins has been involved in the preparation of several synthesis reports for NCHRP and AASHTO on research and practice of geosynthetics in pavements. He has also helped develop and deliver several short courses and workshops on pavement design with geosynthetics sponsored by industry and agency groups, which were delivered to practicing engineers and departments of transportation. Dr. Perkins is also an instructor of a National Highway Institute course on geotechnical aspects of pavements. His most recent research has focused on the development of mechanistic-empirical pavement design and analysis methods for geosynthetic reinforced pavements.
