Biography

Dr Sanjay Kumar Shukla is the Founding Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Geosynthetics and Ground Engineering (Springer Nature, Switzerland). He holds the Distinguished/Adjunct Professorship in Civil Engineering at VIT University, Vellore, Chitkara University, Himachal Pradesh, VR Siddhartha Engineering College, Vijayawada, India, and Fiji National University, Fiji. He has over 22 years of experience in teaching, research and consultancy in the field of Civil (Geotechnical) Engineering. 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 authored/co-authored more than 220 research papers and technical articles, including over 130 refereed journal publications. He is also author/co-author/editor of 11 books, including 7 textbooks, and 12 book chapters. His works have been cited well. Shukla’s generalized expression for seismic active thrust (2015) and Shukla’s generalized expression for seismic passive resistance (2013) are routinely used by practicing engineers worldwide for designing the retaining structures. He has been honored with several awards, including the IGS Award (2018) from the International Geosynthetics Society, USA, in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the development and use of geosynthetics during 2014-2017 award period. He serves on the editorial boards of several international journals. He is a fellow of Engineers Australia, a life fellow of Institution of Engineers (India) and Indian Geotechnical Society, a member of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), International Geosynthetics Society and several other professional bodies.
