    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    Akinniyi Damilola's research focus mainly on the engineering behaviour of unsaturated soils. Much of his contribution seeks to improve the fundamental understanding of soil's response to the changing climate variables (precipitation and temperature) through laboratory testing and numerical modelling.

    His research interest include

    • Unsaturated soil mechanics
    • Thermal effects on soil behaviour
    • Soil improvement
    • Multi-phase flow; microstructural characterization of pore networks in soil


    Akinniyi Damilola  obtained his PhD degree in Geotechnical Engineering from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2019 with a Postgraduate Studentship Award. After his graduation, he took up a position as a postdoctoral research fellow at the same university till 2021. He then worked as a Geotechnical Engineer at AECOM, Asia ltd for few months before joining Coventry University in 2022. He is an enthusiastic civil engineer experienced in geotechnical analysis and design. He has over 6 years’ working experience in teaching, research, and construction practice.
