PhD projects

Dr Asaad Faramarzi's main research interest is in computational modelling applied to geotechnical engineering problems. He is interested in developing novel numerical procedures for sensing techniques to capture buried infrastructure-ground interaction, and locating and condition assessment of underground features. He also has interest in poroelasticity, inter-particle interaction of granular assemblies and novel foundations to support offshore structures.

Dr Faramarzi's current research includes:

Inferring data from quantum technology sensors
Finite element modelling of geotechnical problems
Simulation and prediction of inter-particle interaction of granular assemblies
Application of machine learning in geotechnical and civil engineering problems
Offshore geotechnics
