Research interests

To say that Emeritus Professor Harry Poulos's career in foundation engineering has involved ensuring that buildings are properly supported on the ground they're built on so they won't collapse is not inaccurate, but this simple description belies the enormous contribution this distinguished engineer has made to his field. This is evidenced by the many awards and other forms of recognition he has received and the outstanding international reputation he has earned as a leader in both academia and industry.

"I specialise in the foundations of tall buildings, which are expensive to build, so my job involves not only making sure the supporting capacity of their foundations makes them safe, but also ensuring their economical feasibility for the owners of the building.

"Many of the buildings I've worked on have been overseas. For example, I was involved as a geotechnical peer reviewer in the design of the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Here in Australia I've worked on some high-rise buildings on the Gold Coast, but less so in Sydney, where structures are built on foundations of rock - which is much less interesting from my point of view.

"For many years I held dual roles in academia and industry, and that was probably the most productive time in my career. I supervised a number of research students, which enabled me to take genuine problems from industry and make them the focus of research projects, and then feed the results back into industry practice. I'm proud to say that a number of the practices developed in this way have now become routine in industry.

"The University of Sydney has really been the springboard of my career. I started my undergraduate degree here in the late 1950s and have since completed a PhD and a DScEng, worked in industry and progressed from the position of lecturer to professor to emeritus professor. While I've retired from the University now, I still give an occasional lecture to postgraduate students.

"Over my career I've also been fortunate to have been recognised for my work in various ways. Most recently, in 2010, I'm proud to have been the first Australian to become a Distinguished Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, which recognises outstanding contributions of individuals to the field of civil engineering. It's very gratifying to be recognised in this way."
