Title of talk: 
Dewatering of contaminated sediments with geotextile tubes

Speaker bio:
Dr. Craig Lake is a Professor in the Department of Civil and Resource Engineering at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He has been involved in geoengineering research and practice for almost 25 years. He is the former Editor in Chief of the Canadian Geotechnical Journal and currently an Associate Editor with the journal Geotextiles and Geomembranes. His research interests relate to the broad field of geoenvironmental engineering with emphasis on contaminant migration through engineered barrier systems (geosynthetic clay liners, geomembranes, compacted clay liners, and cement-based barrier systems) and dewatering of contaminated sediment with geotextile tubes. At Dalhousie he teaches courses related to geotechnical and landfill engineering.
