Role: Assistant Lecturer
Current Summarised CV:

Mr. Matemu is a civil engineer by profession. His primary area of research focuses on axial load-deformation of geosynthetic reinforced soil integrated bridge abutment (GRS-IBS). He uses fieldwork, full-scale tests, and numerical approaches to study the role of geosynthetics in improving the load- capacity of bridge abutments.  Also, he has been involved in other research projects related to soil liquefaction due to dynamic loading where he developed a numerical model to predict the potential of soil liquefaction and floating/sinking of pipelines when subjected to wave impacts.
