Krishna Kumar joined the Geotechnical Research Group at Cambridge University Engineering Department in October 2010 as a PhD student. He is supervised by Professor Kenichi Soga. He is affiliated to the King’s College, Cambridge.  Krishna is funded by Cambridge International Scholarship.


Krishna’s research involves multi-scale modelling of soil fluidisation and debris flows. His research is a part of a joint project with Montpellier university, France. The research involves simulating the soil fluidisation problem in micro-and macro-mechanical perspective. Macro scale simulation will be performed using Material Point Method (MPM) and the Micro level modelling will be done using Discrete Element—Lattice Boltzmann Method (DE-LMB). Through this research a new Multi-scale methodology will be developed to study problems such as debris flows and soil fluidisation.
