Dr. Ilhan Chang

Dr. Ilhan Chang is a Senior Lecturer in geotechnical engineering at UNSW Canberra since April 2017. Dr. Chang has a comprehensive expertise in Geotechnical Engineering, Multi-disciplinary studies, and Industrial cooperation and Commercialization. Before his current appointment to UNSW, Dr. Chang engaged his professional career as a Senior Researcher at Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology (KICT) - the only government funded research institute for Civil Engineering, in Korea. Currently, Dr. Chang is leading the E3 Geotechnical Engineering Research Group (E3GEO) at UNSW Canberra.

Dr. Chang earned his Bachelor of Science (2000), Master of Engineering (2004), and Doctor of Philosophy (2010) degrees in Civil and Geotechnical Engineering at KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology). Main topics of his M.S. and Ph.D. dissertations were "Soft Soil Evaluation using Elastic Waves" and "Soil Stabilization using Microbial Biopolymers", respectively. Dr. Chang started his academic career as a Research Assistant Professor at KAIST (2010~2011) and moveD to KICT (2012~2017) as a Senior Researcher to expand his experiences in R&D management and practical implementation. Meantime, Dr. Chang maintained his professional academic duty as an Invited Professor at KAIST (2014~2015) and Adjunct Associate Professor at UST (University of Science & Technology) (2016~2017), before joining UNSW.

Dr. Chang and his research group (E3GEO) are mainly interested in Soil Characterization, Ground Improvement, and Multi-disciplinary Convergence such as, Micro mechanics, Geophysical site characterization, DCM (Deep Cement Mixing), Erosion and soil preservation, and Bio-soils. Currently, Dr. Chang and E3GEO are expanding efforts to to address Geoenvironmental and Sustainability issues such as Environmentally-friendly soil improvement, Anti-desertification, Bio-soil applications (levees, slope, excavation, adobe structures), as well as Emerging geotechnical issues as Lunar soil studies and Planetary terramechanics.

We are waiting for sincere and passionate members to share our future dream.
