Our research focuses primarily on the development of sustainable strategies to enhance the resilience of infrastructure subjected to climate and disaster risks (melting permafrost, landslides, earthquakes). Infrastructure is critical to sustainable community development, especially in northern Canada affected by climate warming.
Our forward-looking research program focuses on the following key infrastructure areas: Civil Infrastructure (geotechnical, transportation infrastructure such as foundations, roads, embankments, buried infrastructure), Renewable Geothermal Energy, Community-Based Land Use Planning and Policy-Making, and Planetary Geotechnics (space engineering and construction for the Moon, Mars, and beyond).
To achieve this goal, we apply a multidisciplinary and holistic approach that comprises fundamental and applied research including advanced numerical analysis, field monitoring, and comprehensive experimental tests to investigate different phases of the life cycle of infrastructure.
The ingredients of our research philosophy are hard work, dedication, adaptability, and collaboration. We are looking for building strong and meaningful teamwork.
