NEW RESEARCHERS TRAINED

TU Delft is the largest and oldest Dutch public technological university.

It is structured into eight faculties and several research institutes. More than 3300 scientific research and teaching staff train over 20000 students (undergraduate and postgraduate).

The Geo-Engineering Section of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences aims to improve the fundamental understanding of materials and processes in the shallow subsurface and develop fundamental knowledge and innovative technology which is essential to address current societal issues and enable engineering for:

  1. Safe constructions in, on and with ground materials (with a particular focus on soft soils),
  2. Minimising the risk and impact of geo-hazards,
  3. Increasing the lifetime of existing soil structures (both manmade and natural),
  4. Sustainable use of the sub-surface.

The section has excellent experimental laboratory facilities and involves a strong multi-disciplinary research team dedicated to the complex, coupled, non-linear and heterogeneous nature of geo-materials. This includes expertise in element testing, instrumentation, physical modelling, constitutive modelling, coupled processes, and numerical and probabilistic modelling.

Meet Our Team

Dr. Amin Askarinejad

Associate Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics

Associate Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics at the section of Geo-Engineering of Delft University of Technology. His research interests and experience include development of early warning systems for natural hazards and soil-structure interaction with a focus on renewable energy harvesting foundations. In his research, he combines innovative techniques of geotechnical physical modelling with advanced sensing technologies and numerical modelling. Before joining TU Delft, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Geotechnical Engineering (IGT) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich) where he conducted his doctoral research as well.

Dr. Stefano Muraro

Assistant Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics

Assistant Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics at the section of Geo-Engineering of Delft University of Technology. His research focuses on the comprehension of the physical processes ruling the multiphase behaviour of soils and on the proposal of innovative measures to mitigate complex challenges in deltaic areas such as environmental and anthropogenic loads. A versatile research methodology which combines advanced laboratory testing and numerical modelling is adopted to serve geotechnical applications as slopes stability, earth retaining structures and soil-structure interaction. During his PhD at Delft University of Technology and PostDoc at Politecnico di Milano, Dr Stefano Muraro investigated the geotechnical behaviour of dykes and embankments founded on soft soils and in particular on peat.
