The article was part of the magazine’s “Lessons Learned from GeoLegends” series. The series is an opportunity for graduate students to interview distinguished academics or practitioners in geotechnical engineering. The article was written by three students from Lehigh University.

Gray has more than 50 years of teaching and engineering experience as a leader in the analysis and design of environmentally friendly bio-stabilization techniques. The students asked how he first became interested in slope bio-stabilization. He said, “I’ve always been interested in the influence of woody vegetation on the stability of slopes and the adverse effects of its removal on slope stability.”
