Dr. Sabyasachi Biswas is currently working as an Assistant Professor & Faculty Adviser of undergraduate students in the Department of Civil Engineering at the National Institute of Technology (NIT) Jamshedpur, India. He graduated (B.E) in 2010, in Civil Engineering from IIEST Shibpur. Successively, he has obtained his Masters (M.Tech) in Transportation System Engineering from IIT Guwahati in 2012. He completed his Ph.D. (Civil Engineering) from IIT Roorkee in 2017. During his B. E at IIEST, Shibpur, Dr. Biswas has been a recipient of the prestigious National Scholarship for undergraduate students. His research interests include traffic engineering, ITS, traffic planning, traffic modelling, road safety, statistical modelling and analysis and pavement design and analysis. He has also received Fellowship of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India during his Ph.D.  Dr. Biswas has the invaluable experience to work as a Project Scientist in DST, Ministry of Science and Technology. In 2015, he was selected for the prestigious IIT Roorkee Heritage Foundation Award for his research contribution. Further, he received “The IIT Roorkee Alumni fund” to participate in the 96th Annual Meeting of Transportation Research Board 2017, held in Washington, DC, USA. He has published several technical papers in reputed international and national journals. He has organized workshops and international conferences on the Trends and Recent Advances in Civil Engineering TRACE-2018. Dr. Biswas is actively involved in various ongoing projects including the Ministry of Indian Railway, Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India (DFCCIL), National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and Indian Road Congress (IRC). He also serves as an associate editor and reviewer in several international journals. He has written a book and several book chapters.

 

Dr. Subhadeep Metya is presently an Assistant Professor in the Geotechnical Engineering Division, Department of Civil Engineering, National Institute of Technology (NIT) Jamshedpur, India. He obtained his B.Tech. from the West Bengal University of Technology, followed by M.Tech. and Ph.D. from Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST), Shibpur. During the tenure of his doctoral research at IIEST, Shibpur, Dr. Metya has been a recipient of the prestigious INSPIRE Fellowship of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India, from whom he has also received the prestigious Newton-Bhabha PhD Placement Grant 2015-16 by virtue of which he has completed six months’ research internship at the Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering (ZCCE) at the Swansea University, UK. His awards and honours include the University Gold Medal in both B.Tech. and M.Tech., the IGS-Shri R.N. Prasad Biennial Prize (2015) and the IGS-HEICO Young Geotechnical Engineer Award (2018) by the Indian Geotechnical Society. He has so far published eight journal papers in peer-reviewed journals, as well as twelve conference papers. Besides, he has gained a rare and invaluable experience and exposure on landslide related topics while attending the well-known international school on landslides “LARAM 2014” held in University of Salerno, Italy. His current research interests include slope stability and landslides, geotechnical earthquake engineering, reinforced soil structures, rock mechanics, foundation engineering, computational geotechnics and risk and reliability applications in civil engineering.
