Dr. Kenan Hazirbaba is an Associate Professor of Geotechnical Engineering in the Civil and Infrastructure Engineering Department. He has worked on numerous large-scale infrastructure projects including port and harbour facilities, pipelines, levees, bridges and roadways, seismic upgrades of municipal structures, tanks, reservoirs, offshore facilities, power facilities, airports, earth dams, office buildings, and oil refineries.

He received his PhD from the University of Texas at Austin, Austin TX in Civil Engineering in 2005 as a registered professional Geotechnical Engineer, his Masters of Science in Civil Engineering from Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey in 1999, and his Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering from Istanbul Technical University in Istanbul Turkey in 1996.

Research

His research interests include stabilization of marginal soils, liquefaction of shallow and deep deposits under seismic loading, and numerical studies and modelling of transport facilities and substructures.
