Editor Biographies

Dr. Pijush Samui is working as Director(i/c) at the Center for Disaster Mitigation and Management in VIT University, Vellore, India. He graduated in 2000, with a B.Tech. in Civil Engineering from Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur, India. He received his M.Sc. in Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India (2004). He holds a Ph.D. in Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering (2008) from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. He was a postdoctoral fellow at University of Pittsburgh(USA)(2008-2009) and Tampere University of Technology(Finland)(2009-2010). At University of Pittsburgh, he worked on design of efficient tool for rock cutting and application of Support Vector Machine (SVM) in designing of geostructure. At Tampere University of Technology, he worked on design of railway embankment, slope reliability and site characterization. In 2010, Dr. Pijush joined in the Center for Disaster Mitigation and Management at VIT University as an Associate Professor. He was promoted to a Professor in 2012.

Dr. Pijush’s research focuses on the application of Artificial Intelligence for designing civil engineering structure, design of foundation, stability of railway embankment, reliability analysis, site characterization, and earthquake engineering. Dr. Pijush has authored or co-authored 7 books, 14 book chapters, 118 journal publications, and 29 conference papers.

Dr. Pijush is the recipient of the prestigious CIMO fellowship (2009) from Finland, for his integrated research on the design of railway embankment. He was awarded the Shamsher Prakash Research Award (2011) by IIT Roorkee for his innovative research on the application of Artificial Intelligence in designing civil engineering structures. He was selected as the recipient of IGS Sardar Resham Singh Memorial Award – 2013 for his innovative research on an infrastructure project. He was elected Fellow of International Congress of Disaster Management in 2010. He served as a guest in the disaster advance journal. He also serves as an editorial board member in several international journals. Dr. Pijush is active in a variety of professional organizations including the Indian Geotechnical Society, the Indian Science Congress, the Institution of Engineers, the World Federation of Soft Computing, and the Geotechnical Engineering for Disaster Mitigation and Rehabilitation. He has organized numerous workshops and conferences on the applications of artificial intelligence in civil engineering design.
