Dr. Scalia specializes in geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering, with a focus on environmental containment systems and the development of innovative barrier systems to protect human health and the environment. These barriers include systems intended to minimize risk resulting from municipal, mining, energy-production, and hazardous wastes. He has performed research on the use of bentonite clay in hydraulic barriers, development of novel bentonite-polymer barrier materials for containment of extreme wastes, performance of final cover systems, and the hydraulic and unsaturated properties of soils. Prior to joining CSU, Scalia was a Senior Associate at Exponent (formerly Failure Analysis Associates) in the Environmental and Earth Sciences Practice in Bellevue, Washington, and Natick, Massachusetts. At Exponent, Scalia specialized in the evaluation of pollutant extent, transport, and fate in saturated and unsaturated soils.
