Dr David M G Taborda is a Lecturer in Geotechnics. Dr Taborda graduated in Civil Engineering at the University of Coimbra, Portugal, in 2004. During his last year of studies, he joined the Geotechnics laboratory at this institution, where he participated in research and consultancy activities for over 2 years. Dr Taborda then joined Imperial College London to undertake his PhD studies in numerical modelling of dynamic soil behaviour and liquefaction-related phenomena. At the end of 2010 he joined the Geotechnical Consulting Group (GCG) as a Geotechnical Engineer, participating in the numerical simulation of different engineering projects involving soil-structure interaction. In August 2012, Dr Taborda was appointed Lecturer at Imperial College London.
