Assist. Prof. Mehdi Serati (Ph.D.), The University of Queensland
Dr Mehdi Serati completed his PhD at The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) through The University of Queensland (UQ) in Brisbane, Australia in Rock Mechanics and Rock Fracture Mechanics. His main research interests include the design and setup of advanced experiments with diverse engineering materials including pavements, brittle composites, ceramics, hard rocks, and superbly hard diamond composites. In his current role as a Lecturer at UQ, he has been contributing as Chief Investigator (CI) to the management of the Large Open Pit Project (LOP II), which is an international research collaboration funded by eight mining companies (including AngloGold Ashanti, Barrick, BHP Billiton, De Beers, Debswana, Newcrest, Rio Tinto and Vale) with funding of $2.04 million from June 2016 to December 2019. The LOP II Project aims to address critical gaps in the current understanding of rock slope failures and landslides in large open pit mines worldwide.
