Biography
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 geostructures in 2013. He is a registered
professional engineer
in the State of Tennessee.
Schedule
Research
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
geostructures, structural dynamics, effects of
sustainable aggregates on soil properties, biological effects of
sustainable aggregates on plant life, and
chemical stabilization of soils.
