The 3rd Hutchinson lecturer
I would like to express my gratitude to my research team and collaborators for this honor. The Hutchinson lecture is awarded to an international scholar, aged 42 or less, who has significantly contributed to the development of knowledge in the field of slope stability and landslides. The previous Hutchinson lecture was delivered by Prof. Nuria Pinyol of the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya in HKSAR, China, in 2018.
The 3rd Hutchinson Lecture is scheduled to be delivered in Oslo, Norway, in Spring, 2023, at the 3rd JTC1 Workshop. The lecture will be published as a paper in an international journal.
The Hutchinson lecture was established to remember the contributions that John Hutchinson, Emeritus Professor of Soil Mechanics at Imperial College, made in the landslide field. Professor Hutchinson was best known for his pioneering contributions to geomorphology, earth surface processes, civil engineering and slope processes. This lecture is awarded by the Joint Technical Committee (JTC1) on Natural Slopes and Landslides of the Federation of the International Geo-Engineering Societies (FedIGS), which includes the learned societies of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), International Society for Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering (ISRM), The International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment (IAEG), International Geosynthetics Society (IGS). The JTC1 consists of 30 international members, comprising renowned academicians, scientists and practitioners in the fields of slope stability and landslides.
