Dr. Rohit Tiwari is a Lecturer in the School of Civil & Environmental Engineering at UNSW and works closely in the areas of Geotechnical Engineering.
Rohit is keen to understand the performance of Geo-structures in dynamic loading conditions for ensuring a safe and reliable Infrastructure system. His primary research interests lie in the areas of Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering and Performance Based Seismic Design of Geo-structures. He has a strong background in experimental investigations of seismic actions in Earth Retaining Structures and calibration of numerical non-linear material models.
Rohit also worked with industry and gained experience in construction and structural design projects. Having a strong interest in academic teaching he also taught several undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Australia and in India. While teaching Rohit always tries to relate the concepts with the learnings from industry and research so that the students could develop a better understanding and realistic imagination of field conditions.
