Gráinne El Mountassir is a Research Fellow in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. She graduated with an MEng with distinction in Civil Engineering and European Studies at the University of Strathclyde. Shortly after, she began a PhD in the field of geotechnical engineering, in the area of experimental unsaturated soil mechanics. She investigated the behaviour of a fill material used in flood embankment construction in Indonesia, paying particular attention to the collapsible nature of the soil, the influence of suction on shear strength and also the influence of compacted fabric on volumetric behaviour. Currently she is investigating the feasibility of improving backfill materials for use in geological repositories using biomineralisation techniques.
