My name is Akshay Kumar, and I am a PhD student in Civil Engineering at IIT Kanpur advised by Prof. Gaurav Tiwari. My research focusses on applying reliability techniques for solving rock engineering problems.
My thesis work is on 'Augmented Reliability Methodologies for Analyzing Reliability of Rock Structures with Limited Data'.
Probabilistic rock engineering
Rock slopes and underground excavations
Random field modeling
Interval field modeling
