Current Research

Dr Rezania's main research interests are in computational geomechanics and soil testing; his current primary field of research is constitutive model development and numerical implementation, integrated theoretical, experimental and numerical modelling of natural soil's behaviour, laboratory element and meso-scale testing of soil and development of novel experimental solutions to understand and/or alter the hydraulic and mechanical behaviour of geomaterials.

Prospective Collaborators:

Mohammad is always looking for high quality PhD students or collaborators to work with him on current or new research projects. Please directly contact him if interested.

There are currently 1 PhD position available (fully funded for EU/UK students); directly contact for application enquiries.
