is a consultant and professor emeritus in geological engineering at Missouri University of Science & Technology (formerly UMR). He is internationally recognized for his expertise in engineering geophysics. Prior to accepting a professorship with Missouri S&T, Neil worked for ten years in the oil and gas industry.

Neil routinely acquires conventional surface wave (MASW and ReMi), ultrasonic surface wave (PSPA), electrical resistivity tomography (ERT), self-potential (SP), ground penetrating radar (GPR), magnetic (MAG), electromagnetic (EM), refraction seismic (REFR), reflection seismic (REFL), echo sounding (ES) and subbottom profiling (SBP) data in support of geotechnical, pavement, structural, hydrogeological and archeological site characterizations.

Neil taught a variety of classes at Missouri S&T; most were focused on engineering applications and interpretation. He has written numerous short course manuals on applied engineering geophysics and coauthored more than two hundred professional papers, one textbook and two geophysical atlases.
