Shiv Shankar Kumar

Assistant Professor

I obtained PhD degrees in Geotechnical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Assam, in 2018. I am currently working as a Assistant Professor at the School of Civil Engineering, KIIT University, Orissa. My research interests include (1) soil dynamics, (2) earthquake geotechnical engineering, (3) ground response analysis and (4) ground improvement technique for liquefaction mitigation.
