  Stark, Timothy D.  

Timothy D. Stark holds a B.S. (University of Delaware 1981), M. Engrg. (University of California, Berkeley 1984), and Ph.D. (Virginia Polytechnic Institute 1987), all in civil engineering. He has been on the faculty of the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois since 1991. Dr. Stark was an Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering at San Diego State University from 1987-1991.

Dr. Stark has taught graduate and undergraduate courses in landfill design, geosynthetics, and clay liners for waste containment.

Dr. Stark has research interests in soil liquefaction during earthquakes, the static and seismic stability of natural and manmade slopes, design of waste containment facilities, and stabilization and behavior of dredged material containment areas. He has been involved in a number of consulting projects on these topics, which has facilitated the transfer of this technology to practice.

Dr. Stark has received a number of awards for his research and teaching activities including the ASTM Standards Development Award from the ASTM (2002), Walter L. Huber Research Prize from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 1999; University Scholar Award from the University of Illinois, 1998; Thomas A. Middlebrooks Award from the ASCE, 1998; News Correspondent Award, ASCE, 1995; Dow Outstanding New Faculty Award from the American Society for Engineering Education, 1994; Xerox Award for Faculty Research, College of Engineering, University of Illinois, 1993; Arthur Casagrande Professional Development Award from the ASCE, 1992; Edmund Friedman Young Engineer Award for Professional Achievement, from the ASCE, 1991; and a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Research Fellow, 1987 and 1991.
