Portland State University
Diane Moug is an Assistant Professor in the Civil & Environmental Engineering department at Portland State University. She joined the department in 2017 after earning her PhD from the University of California, Davis. Her research focuses on how to improve in-situ testing for characterization of geotechnical soil properties and engineering behavior. Her research has a particular focus on improving geotechnical engineering methods with the cone penetration test for characterizing earthquake behavior of soils, and characterizing non-standard soil types. Her work has included studies of diatomaceous soils in Oregon, soils treated with microbially induced desaturation, and intermediate soils.
