About Me


 

Hello !

 

I am Chandra Shekhar Goit and I am an assistant professor at Saitama University, Japan under the Department of Civil and Environment Engineering. My major field of research and teaching is foundations and earthquake engineering, with focus on the soil-structure interaction. Details on my research group (Earthquake Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Group) can be found here: http://eq.civil.saitama-u.ac.jp.

 

Information on my research interests and publications are available under Research link on the left menu. Do feel free to write to me if you are interested and want to know further about my research. Though my main interest is foundation and earthquake engineering, I am more than happy to discuss  on a broad range of topics related to geotechnical earthquake engineering.

 

On the personal side, in free time, I enjoy(ed) playing cricket and hiking (not at the same time though!).
