Short biography

Dr Amin Soltani is a lecturer of civil engineering in the Institute of Innovation, Science and Sustainability at Federation University Australia. Amin completed his PhD (with Dean’s Commendation) at the University of Adelaide, Australia in just over two years. Prior to his current appointment, Amin was a Research Fellow in Geotechnical Engineering at the universities of Melbourne and Adelaide, where he played a significant leading role in the advancement of numerous research projects in collaboration with reputable industry partners, city councils, and governmental agencies. Amin’s principal research interests lie in the fields of experimental geomechanics and transportation/pavement geotechnics. An exciting aspect of his research, which is naturally interdisciplinary, involves reusing solid waste materials and industrial by-products, in conjunction with emerging trends in geotechnical engineering such as polymer technology, to develop new and sustainable geomaterials.
