Dr. Beauregard specializes in geotechnical engineering, with a special focus in the areas of geosynthetic-reinforced structures, foundation engineering, pavement engineering, and sustainable design and construction. She has extensive experience in geotechnical engineering, including 5 years of field and laboratory experience as well as 3 years of experience in design and evaluation of the performance of earth structures. 

Additionally, Dr. Beauregard has 5 years of academic experience in applied geotechnical research and engineering education. She has experience with a variety of software packages such as GeoStudio, Slide, Snail, ReSSA, MSEW, PCASE, and MATLAB.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Beauregard was an Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering at the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) where she focused on applied geotechnical research and instructed a wide variety of civil engineering courses: soil mechanics, foundation design, earth structures, sustainable engineering, and pavement design, rehabilitation, and maintenance. Her research at USAFA included topics related to energy pile performance, remote sensing for pavement condition assessment, and engineering education.

Dr. Beauregard completed her Ph.D. at the University of Colorado Denver where she earned an interdisciplinary degree in geotechnical engineering and architecture studying the holistic performance of geosynthetic reinforced soil (GRS) structures. In support of this work, she completed a comparative lifecycle assessment of GRS systems, a laboratory program focused on how facing rigidity affects GRS deformation, and a study on how human factors can inform infrastructure design.
