Pamela Judge joined Roger Williams University in the fall of 2018. She received a Ph.D. in civil engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.  Previously, she worked in industry for six years as a civil engineering consultant specializing in foundation design, slope stability, and retaining walls.

Dr. Judge’s research interests include geotechnical engineering, coastal protection, and green infrastructure. Her research focuses on studying erosion of soft clay mudflat soils.  Her research interests also include biogeotechnics, specifically the potential use of biopolymers as a means of reducing erosion of cohesive soils.  She is also very interested in examining the role of the civil engineering profession within interdisciplinary long-term shoreline protection projects including engineering implications to regional planning, socioeconomics, and policy considerations.  

At Roger Williams, she teaches ENGR 414 – Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering (both lecture and lab), as well as ENGR 401 – Engineering Senior Seminar.
