Dr Marcelo Llano Serna

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

School of Civil Engineering
Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology

Overview

South American representative of the Young Member Presidential Group of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (2016-2018). Doctor (2016) and Master (2012) in Geotechnics given by the University of Brasilia, Brazil. Civil Engineer (2010) from the National University of Colombia. My experience and previous research involve large strain simulations such as the run-out process in landslides and fall cone tests using the Material Point Method. My experimental background is connected to remoulded soft clay characterization and advanced shear strength testing in such materials.
