Biography

Dr Pat Naughton is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Engineering & Design at IT Sligo and the leader of the Geotechnical Research Group. Dr Naughton is a Chartered Engineer and a specialist in geotechnical and geosynthetic engineering with over 20 years research, development and consultancy experience.

Dr Naughton holds a first class honours BE (Civil) degree and a MEngSc degree both from NUI Galway and a PhD from University College Dublin. He is author of 75 peer reviewed conference and journal publications.

Before joining IT Sligo Dr Naughton worked with Terram Ltd in the UK and as a consultant to leading geosynthetic engineering companies worldwide. As a consultant he has advised on the design of piled embankments, embankments over areas prone to subsidence and reinforced soil walls on major projects across four continents.

Research Interests

Dr Naughton's research interests focus on geotechnical and  geosynthetics engineering, including: (a) the design of piled embankment, embankments over areas prone to subsidence, steep reinforced slopes and reinforced soil walls, (b) the properties of polyester based geosynthetics, including life time assessment (c) the characterisation and reuse of excavated soil waste in the construction of slopes (d) the behaviour of screw piles in sand.
