Prof. Nazri bin Ali gained his PhD studies (2003-2007) at the Cardiff University, United Kingdom which is among the best civil engineering school in the world and obtained master and bachelor degree at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. He is attached with the Department of Geotechnics and Transportation where he has taught core courses such as Geotechnic 1, Geotechnic 2, Soil Mechanic and Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory at undergraduate levels. He has been appointed to hold few posts in the faculty since his service at UTM. Among them, he was the Space Coordinator, FKA from 2010 until 2012. He was then again appointed as the Head of Postgraduate Studies, FKA (later change to Postgraduate Manager in Oct 2012) from Apr 2012 until now. He has involved in 19 research projects amounted more than RM 1 million associated with geotechnical engineering fields and lead 9 of them. Besides obtaining grants from the UTM such as GUP, he also participate in research teams from other universities such as UNIMAP and UMP of which the grants were funded by MOSTI through ERGS and FRGS.
