EGCON 2022 Keynote Speaker Details


Prof. Arindam Basu

Professor IIT Kharagpur
Department of Geology & Geophysics

Prof. Arindam Basu completed B.Sc. and M.Sc. studies from Jadavpur University and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay in 1997 and 1999, respectively. He pursued MPhil and PhD research at the University of Hong Kong (2000-2006) and subsequently, carried out postdoctoral research at Universidade de São Paulo (2006-2007). He joined the Department of Geology & Geophysics, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur as an Assistant Professor in 2007. He has been working as a Professor in this department since 2018.

His prominent research contribution lies in understanding mechanical behavior and failure modes of virtually isotropic and anisotropic rock materials including weathered rocks under different states of stress; in improving various index test methods; and in scrutinizing shear behavior of rock discontinuities that has got implications in shallow-depth rockslides. He received the Geological Society of India Sesquicentennial Commemorative Award in recognition of valuable contributions in the field of Engineering Geology in 2013. His work has been cited over 1950 times []. He has been serving as one of the Editors-in-Chief of The official journal of the IAEG since 2021.
