Chris Price is the chief of the Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory Geotechnical Engineering and Geosciences Branch. GSL is an element of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Prior to joining ERDC, Price worked in private industry for six years as a civil/geotechnical engineer with a focus on trenchless technologies. His research has been focused on force protection, physical security and tunnel detection technologies. Most recently, he led the development of a new start multidisciplinary research program focused on tunnel detection in the urban environment. Price has been the author/co-author on several technical publications and recipient of the 2017 ERDC Research and Development Achievement Award and the 2017 ERDC Award for Excellence in Operational Support.
The Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory hosted a group of peers for a tour of the facilities and to discuss research collaborations. Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory visitors included Charlie Burchfield, Dr. Stephanie Wood, Dr. Robert Moser, Dr. Jay Shannon and Dr. Paige Buchanan. All are shown in a cold room at minus 5 degrees Fahrenheit, posed in front of a rack of ice cores that were drilled and retrieved from Greenland and Antarctica during the past 50 years. The visit was hosted by Dr. Emily Asenath-Smith and the CRREL Materials Team. CRREL and GSL are part of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center.
