Partha Saha

Research Engineer

Partha Saha completed his Bachelor degree from Khulna University of Engineering and Technology in 2008. He completed his Masters and Doctoral Degree from Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan in 2016 and 2020 respectively. His doctoral research was on the effect of lateral spreading and the performance of sheet pile as a seismic retrofit for the old piled abutment. He Joined as Research Engineer in Housing and Building Research Institute, Bangladesh in May 2010. Now he has been working as a Senior Research in the same institute since March 2021.
