PhD Student

Abdualmtalab (Mutalab) Ali is a Ph.D. student at the Memorial University. Mutalab is currently involved in two research projects. He has been conducting pavement distress survey in the City of St. John’s to classify, rank and compile state of the art solutions for these distresses. In addition, he has been working on understanding pavement responses for various pavement design variables for Canadian roads, where he utilizes finite element models.

Mutalab holds a Master’s degree in Civil and Environment engineering from the University of Le Havre in France. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering major in Transportation and Survey Engineering. He has been awarded several government scholarships during his academic studies.  His current research interests include pavement materials characterizations, pavement asset management, finite element modeling, and pavement-tire interaction.
