Tolunay-Wong Engineers’ Chief Geophysicist, J. Gary Tucker, P.G, will speak at the Geo-Houston 2017 Conference [organized by the Houston Geo-Institute Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Texas Section] on March 31 at the Rice University Ley Student Center.
The theme of the conference is “Celebrating Houston” and will feature seven selected speakers from a pool of Houston-area geo-professionals as well as distinguished professors from the University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University, and the University of Houston. Gary’s presentation will include discussion on the Houston Metropolitan Area’s notable geological features, fault studies, and practical case histories, where fault movement has caused substantial, costly damage to private and public infrastructure including buildings, roadways, and utilities.
Gary graduated in 1986 with a bachelor of science degree in geology from Texas A&I University (currently known as Texas A&M, Kingsville). He is a licensed professional geologist in Texas and certified as a professional geologist by the American Institute of Professional Geologists. He has more than 24 years of experience in the fields of geology, near-surface geophysics, and exploring and mapping surface faults. He has worked all over the United States, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
