Negin Yousefpour

 

Dr Negin Yousefpour has joined the Infrastructure Department at University of Melbourne as a Doreen Thomas Fellow in 2020, where she has been leading collaborative, interdisciplinary research on computational geotechnics, applied AI/ML, data-driven and probabilistic methods, performance simulations and advanced soil-structure interaction analyses. Negin also holds a senior engineer appointment with Arup, where she has been involved in technical developments, leadership, and delivery of a wide range of projects in advanced technology and research, infrastructures, building, energy and digital engineering sectors since 2014.

Negin received her Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology and her Master’s from Sharif University where she worked on an extensive laboratory investigation of dynamic properties of asphalt concrete as the core of earth dams. Negin received her PhD in Geotechnical Engineering from Texas A&M University in 2013, where her research focused on computational geotechnics, predictive modeling with AI/Ml, and Bayesian probabilistic methods.
