Sanjay is an Associate Professor and the Program Leader of the Discipline of Civil and Environmental Engineering in the School of Engineering.
Dr Sanjay Kumar Shukla is the Founding Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Geosynthetics and Ground Engineering (Springer International Publishing, Switzerland). He is an Associate Professor and Program Leader of the Discipline of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the School of Engineering, Edith Cowan University, Joondalup, Perth, Australia. He holds the Distinguished/Adjunct Professorship in Civil Engineering at VIT University, Vellore, Chitkara University, Himachal Pradesh, VR Siddhartha Engineering College, Vijayawada, and Amrita University, Coimbatore, India.
He graduated in 1988 with a first-class degree with distinction in Civil Engineering from BIT Sindri (Ranchi University, Ranchi), India. He earned his MTech in Civil Engineering (Engineering Geology) in 1992 and PhD in Civil Engineering (Geotechnical Engineering) in 1995 from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India.
Dr Shukla has held a visiting appointment at the James Cook University, Australia from April 2008 to October 2008, where he taught Geosynthetic Engineering and Rock Mechanics, and he has been an Adjunct Associate Professor there during 2008 to 2011. He has also held visiting appointments at the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong during 2002 to 2005. Prior to joining the Edith Cowan University in April 2009, he has been an Associate Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology BHU, Varanasi, India. He has been the Foreign Faculty at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bhubaneswar, India and Delhi Technological University, Delhi, India in 2016 under Global Initiative of Academic Networks (GIAN) programme of Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India, New Delhi. He collaborates with several world-class universities, research institutions, industries and individuals on academic and field projects. As a Consulting Geotechnical Engineer, he has successfully provided solutions to the challenging field problems faced by many engineering organizations.
He has over 22 years of experience in teaching, research and consultancy in the field of Civil (Geotechnical) Engineering. His primary areas of research expertise include geosynthetic and fibre-reinforced soil engineering, ground improvement methods, earth pressure, slope stability, soil-structure interaction, and environmental, mining and pavement geotechnics. He has a strong research profile. His research contributions include development of many new fundamental engineering concepts for applications in field projects covering civil engineering as well as multidisciplinary areas, such as mining and geological engineering, and they have been cited widely. He has authored/co-authored more than 200 research papers and technical articles, including over 115 refereed journal publications. He is also author/co-author/editor of 10 books, including 6 textbooks, and 12 book chapters. His books titled ‘Core Principles of Soil Mechanics’ and ‘Core Concepts of Geotechnical Engineering’ published by ICE Publishing, London are very popular textbooks for the core geotechnical engineering courses worldwide.
He has been honoured with the Executive Dean’s Award (2011) from the Edith Cowan University, Australia for establishing teaching and research infrastructure in Civil Engineering, the Outstanding Researcher Award (2010) from the Edith Cowan University, Australia, the Vishwakarma Award (2007) from the Akhil Bharatiya Vidhwat Parishad, India for the best technical contribution in the form of a book at the global level, and the Best Paper Awards (1995, 2015, 2016) from the Indian Geotechnical Society, New Delhi, India.
Presently, Dr Shukla is a senior editor (Civil and Environmental Engineering) of Cogent Engineering (Taylor and Francis, UK), and Associate Editor (Geoenvironmental Engineering, Geomechanics and Geotechnics) of Arabian Journal of Geosciences (Springer, Germany). Dr Shukla serves on the editorial boards of Ground Improvement (ICE Publishing, UK), Geotechnical Research (ICE Publishing, UK), International Journal of Geotechnical Engineering (Taylor and Francis, UK), Indian Geotechnical Journal (Springer, India), Advances in Civil Engineering (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, USA), Journal of Geotechnical and Transportation Engineering (JGTTE, USA), Mechanical Sciences (Copernicus Publications, Germany), The Open Civil Engineering Journal (Bentham, UAE), Journal of Environmental Pollution and Control (Annex, USA), and Journal of Mountain Science (Springer, Switzerland).
