Biography

Dr Jonathan Knappett joined University of Dundee as a Lecturer in Civil Engineering in 2006, after obtaining undergraduate and PhD degrees in Engineering from the University of Cambridge.  In 2012 he was promoted to Senior Lecturer.  His research interests are largely cross-disciplinary and include: (i) seismic soil-structure interaction, (ii) slope reinforcement by traditional and sustainable means and (iii) offshore foundation engineering.  In 2009 he won the British Geotechnical Association Medal and in 2010, the TK Hsieh Award of the Institution of Civil Engineers.  He is the course leader for the MSc Programme in Geotechnical Engineering, on the editorial panel of Geotechnique (2011-2013) and is a co-author of two books, one on the design of piles in liquefiable soils and the new 8th edition of the bestselling Craig’s Soil Mechanics.
