Athma R BhandariPostdoctoral Fellow, Bureau of Economic Geology -- Postdoctoral Fellow, Bureau of Economic Geology
I work for the UT Geofluids Consortium at the Bureau of Economic Geology. I earned my Ph.D. (Geomechanics and Geotechnical Engineering) from University of Southampton, M. Eng degree in Civil Engineering (Applied and Rock Mechanics) from the University of Tokyo, and B. E. degree in Civil Engineering from Tribhuvan University, Nepal. My main research interests lie in experimental geomechanics, more specifically, laboratory study of deformation and flow in geomaterials (soils and rocks). I examine the underlying mechanics of observed macro-scale behavior of geomaterials.
