CAREER SUMMARY
Dr. Rajib Dey is a Geotechnical Engineer with Stantec in the Markham, ON office. Rajib has a Doctorate in Geotechnical Engineering and a Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering. Rajib has thirteen (13) years of combined experience in teaching, consulting and research in the field of offshore and onshore geotechnical engineering. Rajib has completed various geotechnical projects across Canada and USA. Many of these projects involved site investigations, testing, extensive analysis and evaluation. He has carried out field investigations and engineering design and analysis for shallow and deep foundations on soil and rock; foundation design in permafrost region; seepage & slope stability analyses; seismic analyses; design and analysis for retaining/dam/dyke structures; design/analysis for marine development and nearshore structures; modeling of underground tunnel structures; modeling of landslides on sensitive clays in both onshore and offshore environment; site visit for landslide assessment and remediation; as well as geohazard assessment. He has a solid background in soil modeling, soil and rock testing, and technical standards. Rajib is skilled in SLOPE/W, SEEP/W, QUAKE/W, Settle 3D, L-Pile/A-pile as well as in advanced numerical analysis using software such as ABAQUS, MATLAB, MAPLE, PLAXIS, Phase 2D, RocScience 3D. He has also experience in proposal writing, site inspections and monitoring, construction supervision, mentoring junior staffs, and report preparation.
