Minna Karstunen

Full Professor, Architecture and Civil Engineering, Geology and Geotechnics, Unit manager of the Geotechnics Research Group.

Minna is a Full Professor in the Division of Geology and Geotechnics, and unit manager research group Geotechnics. The focus of her research is the complex rate-dependent stress-strain behavior of soft natural clays. Soft clays cover large areas of Northern Hemisphere and form a major challenge in infrastructure construction, as well as a natural hazard. Minnas research encompasses constitutive model development, implementation in numerical codes and application in practical context, supported by experimental testing and field scale validation. Furthermore, Minna is interested in further development and modelling of ground improvement methods.
