Dr Muhit decided to be an InfraStructural Engineer and Researcher a decade ago when he realised that there aren’t many engineering fields where what you build will likely still be standing after leaving this earth. Structural engineers are life saviours! Imagine how many more lives could be saved (especially due to earthquakes) if we were better at getting our technologies into less-developed countries.
Currently, Dr Muhit is working as a Research Fellow in Masonry Arch Bridges at the University of Leeds. Prior to this position, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Centre for Infrastructure Performance and Reliability, The University of Newcastle, Australia. He was involved in the Australian Research Council (Discovery Project) funded project from 2017 to 2021.
At present, he is working on an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funded project, named ‘Exploiting the resilience of masonry arch bridge infrastructure: a 3D multi-level modelling framework’. The goal is to provide those responsible for the management of bridges with a powerful suite of analysis modelling tools and a robust overarching multi-level framework capable of being applied to the diverse population of masonry arch bridges in-service today.
He spent more than 8 years in both academia and industry and has a good track of research outcomes. Dr Muhit authored more than 25 high impact scientific articles in his research fields which are published in various international journals and conferences. He is volunteering as a Reviewer for several top scientific journals published by Springer Nature, Elsevier and MDPI.
He wants to devote himself to the development of safe, sustainable, economical and reliable structural design and construction.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
