Mr Bhuyan has 10 years of teaching and research experience after completing bachelor in 2006. Right now, as a PhD candidate, he is working on Deformation characteristics of unbound granular pavement using Wheel Tracker (WT) experiment for varying moisture as well as density of materials. Before starting here, Mr Bhuyan worked on GIS-Based Soil Liquefaction Hazard Zoning due to Earthquake Using real site soil investigation and Geotechnical data.
