Gregory B. Baecher, Ph.D., Dist.M.ASCE, NAE, Glenn L. Martin Institute Professor of Engineering at the University of Maryland, has been honored with inclusion by ASCE in its 2021 class of Distinguished Members for his development and implementation of probabilistic and risk-based approaches to geotechnical and water resources engineering.
Baecher’s many years’ experience in risk assessment and reliability in geotechnical engineering make him a foremost authority in this area. A pioneer in a highly active field, he co-authored with J.T. Christian, Dist.M.ASCE, in 2008 the first specialty text on reliability and statistics in geotechnical engineering. It remains an essential
