Satyajeet Nanda

Associate Professor

Dr. Satyajeet Nanda is working as an Associate Professor in the School of Civil Engineering, KIIT deemed to be University, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India. He obtained Ph.D. in 2013 from the Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. He completed his M.Tech from IIT BHU and B.Tech. from CET, OUAT Bhubaneswar. He has worked as postdoctoral research fellow in School of Natural and Built Environment, Queen’s University Belfast, United Kingdom between Dec. 2013 and Dec. 2016. Since the last eight years, Dr. Satyajeet Nanda is working on offshore Geotechnical engineering. He has been successfully completed a number of research assignment on various subjects related to offshore Geotechnical engineering. His research includes; load-settlement behavior of long piles, behavior of monopile in offshore loading condition, crushing properties of offshore sand, deep water anchor system and strain rate effect of soft soil using T-bar.
