Dr Nunes Lourenco, Sergio Duarte
Dr Lourenco is Assistant Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering since March 2014. SL was previously at the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences, Cardiff University as a Lecturer in Engineering Geoscience. Prior to that SL was at the Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Kyoto University for MSc research on landslides. His research interests are in soil particle wettability (fundamentals and applications in geo-engineering), unsaturated soils and slope processes. In Cardiff, he developed a research network and capacity building in soil particle studies through research grants from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EP/K007904/1, EP/I008756/1) and Royal Society (RG2009/R1), which included visiting positions at the US Geological Survey (USA), University of Hannover (Germany) and Kyoto University (Japan). Dr Loureno was the second runner-up for the 2012 Richard Wolter Prize by the International Association of Engineering Geology for under-40s research excellence in Engineering Geology. He is a member of the Physical Sciences Board, Royal Society (UK), and the editorial board of ICE Geotechnical Research both from 2013.
