Academic wins prestigious EPSRC Research Fellowship

25 May 2017

Dr Alister Smith, Lecturer in Infrastructure Engineering in the School of Civil and Building Engineering, has won a prestigious Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Fellowship.

A Fellowship is a personal award, designed to provide the recipient with the necessary support to establish or further develop themselves as a leader of the future.

Alister’s goal is to revolutionise stewardship of geotechnical infrastructure assets (e.g. buried pipes, foundations, retaining structures, tunnels, rail). His Fellowship is titled ‘Listening to Infrastructure’ and aims to develop novel, low cost, autonomous sensing technologies for asset condition appraisal and early detection of deterioration.
