Research interests

Kevin Briggs is a Chartered Engineer and HS2 Ltd/RAEng Senior Research Fellow in Geotechnical Engineering (2020-2025).

His research is being used to assess the ageing and degradation of infrastructure earthworks (embankments & cuttings) supporting the railway and highway networks. This includes field and laboratory investigations into the properties and behaviour of natural soils and engineered fills.

Kevin was awarded a RAEng Industrial Fellowship in ‘Railway Infrastructure Resilience’ (2017/18) and the EPSRC Doctoral Prize in (2011). He is currently Bath PI for the £4.8M EPSRC ACHILLES Programme (2018-2022) led by Newcastle University. ACHILLES will examine how to better monitor and maintain UK infrastructure earthworks, to save money and reduce transport disruptions.

Kevin is the industrial placement tutor and site visit co-ordinator for civil engineering students.
