Biography

Riyadh Al-Ameri, PhD
FIEAust CPEng NER M.ASCE

Al-Ameri is the discipline coordinator for Civil and Environmental Engineering at the School of Engineering. Al-Ameri has more than 25 years of mixed industrial and academic experience. Before joining Deakin University in 2010, Al-Ameri has engaged for five years in a senior role with the construction industry within the design and consultation space. He has established an international professional reputation. Al-Ameri has worked as an academic in various universities internationally including the University of Baghdad and the University of Technology in Iraq. In 2005, Al-Ameri was awarded the Australian Government Endeavour Research Fellowship hosted by Monash University. He has contributed to novel research which has been acknowledged with an honorary position. Since 2015, Al-Ameri has been working closely with the American University of Sharjah (UAE) on the durability of concrete in the marine environment. He has developed a relevant testing facility at Deakin’s concrete lab to continue his research.


During his time at Deakin University, Al-Ameri has participated effectively in industry projects, teaching and learning, research, and service. His research at Deakin University has been aligned with the infrastructure and environment theme and the Sustainable Composite Materials and Structures Research Group. His award-winning research has been funded by various industry partners including Fresenius Medical Care, FormFlow, L2U Group, and Auspits. Al-Ameri is currently a Fellow of Engineers Australia, registered Chartered Professional Engineer in Leadership and Engineering Management, Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering, and Building Services. Member of Standard Australia scoping committee BD-108, for the Design of Concrete Structures using Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Bars. Al-Ameri is an internationally recognised civil and structural engineer and licensed in Australia (CPEng, NER, VBA-EC), Bahrain (Cat-A), and Iraq.


Al-Ameri obtained his PhD in structural engineering from Cardiff University (UK) and contributed to the theoretical development of steel-concrete composite structures. Al-Ameri expanded his research focus in collaboration with industry partners to cover innovative structural systems such as slim composite floors, cellular structures, and affordable housing. In his research, Al-Ameri focuses on the durability of concrete and composite structures and investigates the steel/concrete corrosion in the harsh and marine environment. Al-Ameri examins sustainable construction materials and techniques to extend the service life of new and existing structures while incorporating various waste and industry by-products in concrete, such as epoxy treated chopped carbon fibres, waste plastic, waste glass, and fly ash. His research on reusing waste plastic and waste glass in concrete has a potential impact on several sectors, including the construction industry, waste management, environment, and health sector. Al-Ameri received many national awards in 2018, while the Fisher Fine Arts Library's New Materials Collection at the University of Pennsylvania (United States) displayed samples of his new concrete. Engineers Australia has listed Al-Ameri as Australia's Most Innovative Engineer (2018), recipient of Victorian Regional Achievement and Community Award (2018), Excellence in Industry Collaborations Award (2014), and Teaching Excellence Award (2012).
