Dr Alireza Mohammadinia

Research Interests

  • Geotechnical Engineering (Ground improvement, Soil Dynamics, Finite element Modelling)

Biography

Alireza received his PhD in Geotechnical Engineering (2016) from Swinburne University of Technology. He worked on an Australian Research Council linkage project along with industry partners. His research was mainly in the field of pavement geotechnics, ground improvement and advanced soil and pavement testing. He focused on the geotechnical behaviour of geopolymer stabilized construction and demolition waste materials and investigated Sustainable application of recycled materials in geotechnical engineering applications. He got his Masters of science in Geotechnical Engineering (2011) from Amirkabir University of Technology (Iran). During his master studies he investigated internal erosion of embankment dam Foundations and worked on design and testing of filter materials in embankment dams. Alireza is currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow on an Australian Research Council linkage project at The University of Melbourne.
