Dr. Hendry is the Associate Director of CaRRL and assists with coordinating CaRRL research activities. His research with the railway industry started in 2005 with Northern Ireland Railways on projects relating to slope stability and the cyclic loading of embankments over soft peat foundations. His current research is focused on the strength of soft foundation soils under heavy axle loading, the degradation of railway ballast and its effects on the integrity of the track structure, and the fundamental soil mechanics of peat and organic soils. He is a strong proponent of field based studies and has an interest in for finding new means to measure soil behaviours in the field.
