Kamelia Atefi is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at York University.
Prior to joining the Lassonde School of Engineering at York University in August of 2020, she was
an Assistant Professor at University at Buffalo (UB), NY. She completed her Masters, PhD, and
Postdoctoral studies at the University of Waterloo. She has twelve years of research experience
in constitutive, analytical, and numerical modeling in computational geomechanics. Her research
contributes to development of resilient and sustainable energy production/storage technologies,
and design for climate change through a fundamental understanding of coupled geomechanical
processes (hydraulic-mechanical-thermal-dynamics). Her current research involves:
enhancement of hydrocarbon, geothermal, and aquifer storage recovery operations; prediction of
geo-environmental impacts of deep production/injection operations; tunneling in extreme
geological settings; geomechanics of glacier basal motion; and bio-mediated soil improvement.
