environments. Dr. Felice has been recognized as an invited member to the National Academy of Engineering Symposium on Frontiers of Engineering and was also selected as a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers Reconnaissance Team visits to the affected earthquake damaged area of the Sichuan, China basin. He is the past Chair of the Transportation Research Board Committee on Modeling for the Design, Construction and Management of Geosystems and is serving on the Transportation Research Board Committee on Tunnels and Underground Structures as well is an active member in the International Tunneling Association working group on research. Dr. Felice earned his B.S. from Ohio University, an M.S. from the Air Force Institute of Technology and a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Utah.

Youssef Hashash is a Professor in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois which he joined in 1998. His research interests include deep excavations, earthquake engineering, numerical modeling, and soil-structure interaction. He is also involved in the use of visualization and virtual reality techniques in geotechnical engineering applications. Dr. Hashash worked as a staff engineer for the Parsons Brinckerhoff/Morrison Knudsen team in Dallas, Texas on the Superconducting Super Collider Project construction and was part of the Geotechnical and Underground Engineering group at Parsons Brinckerhoff in San Francisco, California. He has been involved in many tunnel and deep excavation projects around the United States and Canada. Dr. Hashash is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, the American Underground Association, the International Tunneling Association, and serves on the Earth Retaining Structures Committee of the Geo-Institute of ASCE, and Performance of Structures during construction of SEI. In 2002 Dr. Hashash was named a Beckman Fellow at the Center of Advanced Studies at the University of Illinois. He is a 2001-2003 American Bridge Faculty scholar (UIUC). In 2000, Dr. Hashash is a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) and the Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize and Arthur Casagrande Professional Development Awards from the Geo-Institute of ASCE. He was twice a National Center for Supercomputing Application Fellow (UIUC). He received the James Crose Medal (ASCE, 1994) and Thomas Middlebrooks Awards (ASCE, 1997) for journal publications. Dr. Hashash earned his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Civil Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
