Speaker Bio:

Lord Robert Mair is a highly successful geotechnical engineer who was President of the Institution of Civil Engineers 2017-2018. In October 2017 he became Emeritus Professor of Civil Engineering and Director of Research at Cambridge University and is currently a Professor of Geotechnical Engineering and Head of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Cambridge.

He studied Engineering at Clare College, University of Cambridge, where he was awarded an MA in 1975 and PhD in 1979 for his work on tunnelling in soft ground, and in 1983 he became one of the founding Directors of the Geotechnical Consulting Group.

Throughout his career he has specialised principally in underground construction, providing advice on numerous projects world-wide involving soft ground tunnelling, retaining structures, deep excavations and foundations. Recent international projects have included railway tunnels in cities around Europe and Asia. In the UK he has been closely involved with the design and construction of the Jubilee Line Extension for London Underground, and with the Channel Tunnel Rail Link and Crossrail projects.
