Dr Asal Bidarmaghz

Research Associate


Dr Asal Bidarmaghz received her PhD in Civil Engineering (Geothermal technologies) from The University of Melbourne, Australia in March 2015 and her M.Sc. (2008) and B.Sc. (2004) in Mining Engineering (Extraction) from University of Tehran, Iran. Prior to joining University of Cambridge, Asal was working as a Research Fellow with the Geotechnical Engineering group at The University of Melbourne, Australia specifically focusing on numerical simulation of energy geo-structures and the possibility of the thermally efficient integration of geothermal technologies into different subsurface structures.

Research Interests

Asal is a Research Associate in the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge since Oct 2017. Asal has got expertise in shallow geothermal technologies, Multiphysics modeling of the ground and underground spaces, porous media and subsurface flow. Her current research is focused on studying the influence of underground structures on above ground spaces and on thermo-hydro properties of the ground to investigate the potential of increase and extended application of the underground spaces working with multi-disciplinary Energy Efficient Cities initiative (EECi) group.
