About

Dr. Daniel Pradel is a Professor of Practice in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geodetic Engineering at the Ohio State University. Previously, he was Vice-President at Shannon & Wilson in Glendale, California, and an Adjunct Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Daniel is a professional engineer registered in California, Nevada, Hawaii, Utah and Switzerland.

He has 30 years of practice in industry, and has worked on projects located in four continents, including large dams, slope stabilizations using drilled shafts, regional transportation projects, and foundation designs. He has also performed numerous reconnaissance visits after major natural hazard events such as Earthquakes, Landslides and Hurricanes. Daniel has published over 50 papers on earthquake induced landslides, seismic site response, seismic compression, slope instability and the stabilization of slopes using drilled shafts. Many of his publications involve numerical modeling for static and dynamic response. Daniel is an Associate Editor of the ASCE Journal of Geotechnical Engineering, a Diplomate of the Academy of Geo-Professionals and a Fellow of ASCE. He is active in numerous committees of the DFI and ASCE’s GeoInstitute.
