Aliasger Haiderali CEng MICE

PhD Student


Aliasger is a final year PhD candidate undertaking research aimed at understanding the load deformation behaviour of monopile foundations for offshore wind turbines. This is a research area closely aligned to his interests in offshore geotechnical engineering, soil-structure interaction, numerical modelling and renewable energy.

He is also a chartered civil engineer with several years of experience in the design and management of infrastructure projects.
