Mubashir Aziz is a final year PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ikuo Towhata at the Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory, Civil Engineering Department, the University of Tokyo, Japan. The objectives of his PhD research is to elucidate the possible mechanisms responsible for negative ageing of granular soils and its effects on the engineering properties of soils. The EGU poster presented focuses on exploring the physical phenomena controlling the time-dependent geotechnical properties of naturally occurring granular soils because in conventional risk assessment approach for slope failures and other geohazards , the ageing effects of soils are often ignored.
