Bachelor of Science, Civil Engineering, Colorado School of Mines, 1997
Dr. Goss has worked on numerous heavy construction projects, including tunnels, microtunnels, hard rock mines, dams, and reservoirs, specializing in site investigation and construction engineering. His roles on these projects have ranged from miner to shift engineer to resident engineer to engineer of record.
In the field of abandoned mine clean up, Dr. Goss has been involved in geologic investigations along with the design and evaluation of ground support, mine water flow control, grouting, and bulkheads. His specialty is the evaluation and rehabilitation of draining mine adits with a focus on ground control, water inflow, and methods to maintain water flow to various types of treatment. Most of these projects were undertaken to address water quality impacts due to mine waters and acid mine drainage.
Dr. Goss served as president of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Colorado Section in 2005 and 2006. In 2007, Dr. Goss was the recipient of the national ASCE Edmund Friedman Young Engineer Award for Professional Achievement. He is now a Fellow of ASCE.
Dr. Goss is a Shotcrete Nozzleman Trainer through the American Shotcrete Association and a Shotcrete Nozzleman Certification Program Examiner through the American Concrete Institute.
