Abdualmtalab Ali

Program: PhD, 2017-2020; Thesis title: Modeling of asphalt pavement performance indices in different climate regions using soft computing techniques

Abdualmtalab (Mutalab) Ali is a Ph.D. student at the Memorial University. Mutalab is currently involved in two research projects. He has been conducting pavement distress survey in the City of St. John’s to classify, rank and compile state of the art solutions for these distresses. In addition, he has been working on understanding the root causes of ruts in NL roads and how they can be mitigated.  Mutalab holds a Master’s degree in Civil and Environment engineering from the University of Le Havre in France. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering majored in Transportation and Survey Engineering.
