Biography

Dr. Kali Prasad Nepal is a Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering (Traffic and Transportation) in the School of Engineering at Deakin University, Australia.

Dr. Kali completed his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering (Transportation Planning and Engineering) at Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan; M.Eng. in Civil Engineering (Transportation Engineering) at Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand; Graduate Certificate in Higher Education at Griffith University, Australia; and undergraduate studies in Civil Engineering at Tribhuvan University, Nepal. Before joining to Deakin, he worked as an academic at Griffith University and Central Queensland University in Australia. His research interests lie in the area of transportation/traffic engineering and engineering education. In recent years, he has focused his research on transportation safety, transport planning and policy and contemporary learning environment in higher education.

Dr. Kali has taught traffic and transportation engineering subjects/units in both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
