William J. and Elaine F. Hall Endowed Professor

John Burkitt Webb Endowed Faculty Scholar

Professor Youssef Hashash holds a B.S. (1987), an M.S. (1988) and a Ph.D. (1992) in civil engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He began his career with the PB/MK TEAM in Dallas on the Superconducting Super Collider Project. In 1994 he joined Parsons Brinckerhoff in San Francisco and worked on a number of underground construction projects in the U.S. and Canada including the Boston Central Artery/Tunnel project.

Professor Hashash joined the faculty of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1998. He taught courses in Geotechnical Engineering, Numerical Modeling in Geomechanics, Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering, Tunneling in Soil and Rock, and Excavation and Support Systems. His research focus includes deep excavations in urban areas, earthquake engineering, continuum and discrete element modeling and soil-structure interaction. He also works on geotechnical engineering applications of visualization, augmented reality, imaging and drone technologies in. He has published over 250 articles and is co-inventor on four patents. His research group developed the software program DEEPSOIL that is used worldwide for evaluation of soil response to earthquake shaking.

Professor Hashash is a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and has received a number of teaching, university and professional awards including the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers and the ASCE 2014 Peck medal. He is a past president (2018-2019) of the Geo-Institute of ASCE.

ASSISTANT

Mr. Numanoglu recently joined Golder, Redmond office as a Staff Engineer specializing in geotechnical engineering. He holds a B.Sc (2013) and BA (2013) degrees in civil engineering and business administration (general management minor program), respectively, from the Middle East Technical University at Ankara, TURKEY. He earned his M.Sc. degree in 2014 and defended his Ph.D. dissertation in 2019 at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign under supervision of Professor Youssef Hashash. Ozgun is also a member of several organizations including the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI), the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) and Turkish American Cultural Association of Washington (TACAWA).
