Christian Brothers University
Office: Nolan 132
Dr. Assadollahi is a native Memphian and a 2005 graduate of Christian Brothers High School.
Dr. Assadollahi earned a B.S. in Civil Engineering with a concentration in structural engineering
from Christian Brothers University in 2009. He also earned a B.S. in Mathematics from
Christian Brothers University in 2009, concentrating in applied differential equations. He earned a
M.S. in Civil Engineering from The University of Memphis in 2010 with a concentration in structural
seismic engineering. Dr. Assadollahi completed his Ph.D. in Engineering from The University
of Memphis with a concentration in geo-structures in 2013. He is a registered professional engineer
in the State of Tennessee.
Dr. Assadollahi is active in both structural and geotechnical engineering research. Currently he is
working with his undergraduate research group on projects involving mathematical optimization of
geo-structures, structural dynamics, effects of crumb rubber on soil properties, biological effects of
crumb rubber on plant life, and chemical stabilization of soils.
Dr. Assadollahi has served as the faculty advisor of the American Society of Civil Engineers
(ASCE) student chapter at CBU since Fall 2015. The link below gives recent information
about this student organization and all of their accomplishments since Dr. Assadollahi has been
the faculty advisor. Dr. Assadollahi also has served has the senior project advisor to several
students interested in both Geotechnical and Structural Engineering. Below is a link that shows
all of the senior projects Dr. Assadollahi has advised since his faculty appointment in Spring 2014.
