Personal profile


Dr Keramat joined the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HK PolyU) as a research assistant professor in December 2020. He obtained MSc and PhD degrees (both with honors track) in Civil Engineering, majored in Hydraulic Structures, in 2006 and 2011 from Shahid Chamran University and Shahrood University of Technology, respectively. Following his graduation and prior to joining the CEE of HK PolyU, he was affiliated as a faculty member in Civil Engineering Department of Jundi-Shapur University of Technology, during which he taught several undergraduate and postgraduate courses and (co-) supervised/advised 14 MSc and 5 PhD students. He was a visiting scholar in Eindhoven University of Technology (2009-2010), visiting faculty member in Tokyo Institute of Technology (2014), Research Associate in Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (2016-2017) and visiting faculty member in the University of Alberta (2019-2020). He is an active researcher in modeling fluids, pipe structures, haemodynamics and their computational analysis. His main research interests include: wave propagation, fluid-structure interaction, column separation, defect detection, non-Newtonian fluids, viscoelasticity and buckling in pipelines and pipe networks as well as their mathematical modelling and statistical analysis. He has published over 30 papers in top peer-reviewed journals and has served as reviewer to several professional water, structural and numerical-related journals.
