Dr. Aliakbar Gholampour is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Civil and Structural Engineering at the College of Science and Engineering of Flinders University. He obtained his PhD from the University of Adelaide in 2019. He was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne from Jul. 2019 to Jul. 2020. He also holds Honorary Fellow at the University of Melbourne.

He has extensive experience in research on the development of sustainable construction/building materials and in teaching on civil/structural engineering topics. He worked in ARC-Training Centre for Advanced Manufacturing of Prefabricated Housing (ARC-CAMPH) at the University of Melbourne. He is project manager of three research projects in $2.7 M Cooperative Research Centres Projects (CRC-P) round 8. His main area of research is the development of eco-friendly and sustainable materials, including geopolymer, recycled aggregate concrete, waste-based concrete, nanocomposite, lightweight foam composite, high performance and ultra-high performance composite, smart structures, and glass-fibre reinforced concrete composite for the next generation of construction industry. His other main area of research is numerical modelling/design of structures/systems.
