Welcome to my website.

I am Lecturer in Geotechnical Engineering in the School of Engineering at University of Glasgow headed by Prof. William Sloan. I am a member of the Soil Mechanics Group led by Prof. Simon Wheeler within the Research Division of Infrastructure and Environment. I am also a member of the Glasgow Computational Engineering Centre (GCEC).

I received my Bacholer and Master degrees in Civil Engineering from Beihang University (Beijing, China) and PhD degree in Geotechnical Engineering from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). After working as a Post-doc researcher with Dr. Jidong Zhao in HKUST for one year, I joined the University of Glasgow in July 2013.

My research has been focusing on constitutive modelling of soils, advanced numerical analysis of geotechnical problems, catch fences for rocks and debris flow and infrastructure sensors. Please explore this website to find out more about my past research, current projects, publications and positions available.

The University of Glasgow has a long history of research in civil engineering. The UK's first Chair of Civil Engineering was established at the University of Glasgow in 1840. William John Macquorn Rankine, who was the second holder of this Chair is internationally recognized as an early leader in many fields of engineering, including geotechnical engineering, with the highly prestigious annual Rankine Lecture of the British Geotechnical Association named after him. We are always looking for opportunities to work with academic and industrial partners, self-motivated students, post-doctoral researchers and visiting scholars.
