Gary joined the University of Warwick in January 2017 and is continuing his current research into rapid prototyping of geosynthetics interfaces.
Additionally, his research portfolio includes:
- waste containment,
- slope stability early warning systems,
- sustainable construction and soil modification with admixtures.
He has extensive industry connections, and has international collaborations with a number of universities.
