Thomas Lyden is a forensic engineering expert for Robson Forensic.  In that position, he provides technical investigations, analysis, reports, and testimony toward the resolution of commercial and personal injury litigation involving the design, construction and maintenance of roadways.

Prior to joining Robson Forensic, Thomas held various positions involving traffic engineering, transportation planning and design, maintenance operations, construction, and project management with the Ohio Department of Transportation and a Columbus area engineering consulting firm.  

Thomas has a BSCE from the University of Cincinnati, an MBA from the Ohio State University, and is a registered Professional Engineer in 16 states and a certified Project Management Professional.  Throughout his career he has served in various leadership capacities with the Institute of Transportation Engineers, American Public Works Association, Transportation Research Board, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, and the City of Hilliard.  He is currently serving as the Central Ohio Section Secretary. 

Secretary

Candidate: Nicholas Mill

Nick Mill is a graduate of the Ohio State University with a BS in Civil Engineering, and is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Ohio. Nick has 12 years of experience on a wide variety of project types throughout Ohio for municipal, county, and state-level clients. His experience includes construction administration, structural retaining wall and bridge design, water and wastewater treatment as well as collection/distribution, and roadway geometric design. Most recently, Nick took a position in 2018 at EMH&T as part of the Public Works group, which works directly with local municipalities to provide design and management assistance for all aspects of their infrastructure. Much of Nick’s work involves reviewing private development projects, designing storm- and wastewater conveyance systems, water distribution, and roadway reconstruction projects. Nick was involved in ASCE during his time at Ohio State, and was a member and sometime attendee of ASCE events afterward, but found that his time for “extra-curricular activities” dwindled after the birth of his first child in 2015. He was also a member of the Development Board for the Licking County museum “The Works” and was a part of their annual STEM Fest for several years, greatly enjoying the interactions with children of all ages during those events, and judging the annual toothpick bridge competition. Recently, Nick has been looking to get more involved with the Central Ohio engineering community to foster relationships and share expertise, as well as hopefully getting some additional involvement in youth and educational programming.
