PROF. IR. DATO' DR. ROSLAN BIN HASHIM

Roslan Hashim was appointed Professor of Geotechnical Engineering at University of Malaya in 2009. He is Head of Coastal Processes Studies and Coastal Engineering at Institute of Ocean and Earth Sciences (IOES), University of Malaya. He is also one of the Directors of the University of Malaya Consultancy Unit (UPUM), a multi-discipline consultancy company registered under the Board of Engineers Malaysia, started in 1992. He was the of Head of Civil Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering at University of Malaya between December 2007 and August 2009, and between September 2009 and June 2011. In 1983, after graduating from Leeds University in Civil Engineering, he joined the Department of Civil Engineering at University of Malaya. One year later, he returned to U.K to work for his Ph.D on time-dependent cavity expansion in normally-consolidated clayey soils. His early involvement with problematic soft soils began at that time and in 1989, he was awarded a PhD degree. Throughout his career he has specialized primary in construction on soft soil grounds, providing advice on numerous projects involving ground improvement methods, earth-fill dams, organic soft soils and design of foundations. In addition, he has been responsible for the introduction of innovative integrated coastal protection measures under the umbrella of ecological engineering when in 2012 he was appointed as Principal Investigator of High Impact Research (HIR) project supported by Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education. The developed program was successful in rehabilitating the degraded coastal ecosystem in a number of pilot projects at the west peninsular Malaysia. He has been a member of Institute of Engineers Malaysia (1998), Professional Engineer (P.Eng) licensed by Boards of Engineers Malaysia (1999), member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (M.ASCE) and Fellow member of Engineers Australia (FIEAust). He was a member of the Commission of Enquiry into the Failure of Certain Civil Structures in the State of Penang. He received his award - DARAJAH SETIA PANGKU NEGERI (DSPN) that carries DATO' title from Penang Government. Prof. Ir. Dr. Dato' Roslan Hashim has taught undergraduate and graduate level courses in Soil Mechanics, Coastal Geotechnics, Geotechnical Engineering and Foundation Engineering. His main research themes are Soft Soil Improvement; Erosion Mitigation and Prevention; Field Characterization of Soils; Field Testing and Monitoring; Groundwater, Seepage, and Permeability; and Eco-friendly Coastal Protection structures. He has supervised over 30 Ph.D and Master students and published numerous papers, books, engineering guidelines and conference papers.
