Dr. Zekkos has been involved in a wide range of consulting projects that span the fields of geotechnical engineering, data analytics, geospatial analysis and remote sensing. Consulting projects have involved the design, analysis, construction and monitoring of a number of projects in the US, Greece, Peru, Finland, Romania and Angola,  Projects include satellite and UAV-based optical and radar sensing to monitor infrastructure, ground improvement projects, in-situ characterization, landfill design and construction, foundation design of power plant facilities, settlement prediction of dams, monitoring and analyses of deep supported excavations, rockmass excavations, field and laboratory testing for highway construction, tunnelling construction with the New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM), dynamic laboratory testing, seismic site response analyses, liquefaction engineering evaluation, ground motion selection and spectral matching for offshore platforms and LNG facilities, and onshore and offshore construction on soft soils. In addition, he has been engaged in forensics investigations involving geosynthetic performance, deep fill settlement, and landslides.
