Research Profile

Dr S Tripathy Snehasis Tripathy graduated from Bangalore University, India in 1989 with a first class distinction degree in Civil Engineering, worked five years as a lecturer in Civil Engineering in India. In 1994 he received a Master of Engineering degree in Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, India. Later he joined the Water and Land Management Institute, India as a Research officer and worked for a short period. He joined Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore to read for a PhD in 1995. He received prestigious fellowships, such as Senior Research Fellow and Research Associate from the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, India, during 1996-2000. In 2000 Snehasis was awarded a PhD degree in Geotechnical Engineering from IISc Bangalore for his research work on cyclic swell-shrink behaviour of compacted expansive soils.

Snehasis joined Nanyang Technological University, Singapore as a Research Fellow in 2000. He was involved in developing several new devices for inducing and measuring suction in soils (viz., a new pressure plate device to establish drying and wetting soil water characteristic curves, measurement of soil suction using chilled mirror dew-point device). In 2002, he joined Bauhaus-University Weimar, Germany and continued to do teaching and research in the field of unsaturated soil mechanics until 2006. He joined Cardiff University in December 2006.
