Dr. A. Askarinejad



Amin Askarinejad is assistant professor of experimental soil mechanics at Delft University of Technology. His research interests include slope stability analysis, unsaturated soil mechanics, soil atmosphere interactions, physical modelling, geotechnical site investigation, field monitoring and laboratory testing. He conducted his doctoral project on the failure mechanisms of landslides due to hydraulic perturbations at the Institute of Geotechnical Engineering at ETH Zurich, Switzerlandwhere he also did a postdoctoral research afterwards. His main interest was on the geotechnical, geological, hydrogeological, and biological interacting processes affecting the responses of slopes using tools from geotechnical engineering, geophysics and remote sensing. To that goal, he has performed field experimentsincludingfull scale landslide triggering(film), laboratory testing, physical modelling using geotechnical centrifuge, analytical modelling and HM coupled numerical simulations. Enthusiastic PhD candidates, MSc and BScstudents, as well asother collaborators are always welcome to join in research.
