About Bhaskar C.S. Chittoori

Bhaskar Chittoori received his Ph.D. in civil engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) in 2008, taught at UTA, and worked as a geotechnical engineer at a civil engineering design firm before joining the faculty of the Department of Civil Engineering at Boise State University in 2013. Dr. Chittoori's research interests and experience span multiple disciplines with significant contributions in the fields of chemical soil stabilization, clay mineral quantification, durability and leachate studies on chemical soil treatment, finite element modeling of pavement behavior, application of artificial neural networks in geotechnical engineering, and seepage and stability analysis of dams and levees. His dissertation investigated an innovative method to determine the dominant clay mineral in expansive clays using chemical properties of a given soil and then examined the need to incorporate clay mineralogy in the soil stabilizer design methodology. Dr. Chittoori is a licensed Professional Engineer in Texas, a member of Tau Beta Pi (Engineering Honor Society) and Chi Epsilon (Civil Engineering Honor Society), and serves as a reviewer for engineering journals and conference proceedings.
