Professor Baziarís research activities are mainly in the field of soil dynamics including liquefaction, lateral spreading, seismic behavior of earth dams and site effects. He is internationally known for using soft computing methods such as artificial neural network and genetic programming for explaining many earthquake phenomenas such as liquefaction, lateral spreading and pile capacity and settlament. He is a member of permanent committee on Iranian earthquake  design  code. 


He  is  the author of soil dynamics book (in persian) which has been widely used by graduate students. He has collaborated with many internationally known researchers such as professor Towhata, professor Merrifield, professor Katzenbach, professor Lee, professor Kim and professor Pak. He is also reviewer for many journals such as Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering (ASCE), Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering, Computers and Geotechnics.

His latest research has been focused on liquefaction assessment using energy approach and fault effect on the tunnels.
