Arman Khoshghalb


Senior Lecturer – School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UNSW Sydney


Arman Khoshghalb is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UNSW Sydney. He obtained his PhD in 2012 from UNSW, and joined UNSW as an academic in the same year. His research interests include mechanics of unsaturated soils, soil water retention behaviour, geothermal energy and energy geo-structures, advanced numerical methods and constitutive modelling in Geomechanics, and coupled analysis of porous media. He has developed and implemented a novel meshfree based computational scheme for coupled analysis of flow and deformation in unsaturated soils. He has also developed a novel finite difference time discretisation scheme for numerical solution of partial differential equations. He is a member of the Editorial Board of Computers and Geotechnics, and also a member of the Technical Committee 103 (Numerical Methods in Geomechanics) and 106 (Unsaturated Soils) within the ISSMGE.
