One thought on “Lectures/Events

  1. I am interested in discussing a speaking engagement in Miami at an Engineering Conference. The topic could be based on your “Could Miami Become a Buoyant City After All?” article. If you would be kind enough to contact me at Elizabeth@geosynthetica.net I would be very keen to discuss the potential with you. Thanks in advance for your consideration.
