Omid Ghasemi Fare

Assoc Professor

Dr. Ghasemi-Fare has received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Civil and Environmental Engineering respectively, in 2008 and 2010 from Sharif University of Technology, Iran. He got his Ph.D. in the field of Geotechnical Engineering with a Ph.D. minor in Computational Science at the Pennsylvania State University in 2015. After completing the Ph.D., he joined the faculty at the Civil and Environmental Engineering department in August 2015. His research experiences are revolved around energy geotechnics, geothermal energy, unsaturated soil mechanics, heat and fluid flow in porous media, THM modeling, transportation geotechnics and geotechnical earthquake engineering. He has both experimental and numerical research experiences. His research has been sponsored by the National Science Foundation, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, and NSF EPSCoR at the Kentucky.
