• Biography

    Prof Alexander Scheuermann is a recognised expert in geotechnical and environmental engineering renowned for his expertise in the development, modification, and application of electrical and electromagnetic measurement methods for various applications. Since 2010, he has held a position at the School of Civil Engineering at the University of Queensland, where he heads the GeoSystems Group. This group is dedicated to investigating complex multiphysical processes in porous media across the scales, including processes under unsaturated conditions. His academic journey commenced at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, where he completed his Habilitation Thesis on "Spatial Time Domain Reflectometry (Spatial TDR) in Geohydraulics and Geomechanics". For the advancement of the Spatial TDR technology for key industries in Queensland he was awarded the Qeensland Smart Futures Fellowship in 2012, and he was invited to join the Technical Committee of the International Society for Electromagnetic Aquametry (ISEMA) for his contributions to this research field. He was awarded the prestigious ARC Future Fellowship in 2018 on the topic of erosion. Prof Scheuermann is Editor of Acta Geotechnica and Associate Editor of the Journal of Geophysics and Engineering.
