    Personal profile

    Vision Statement

    I strive to get better understanding of how construction materials and structures respond to loadings across multiple scales (micro, meso, macro) by a combination of experimental and computational methods in a view to optimise their performances for practical design in terms of structural integrity, reliability, durability and sustainability.



    I have 20 years of teaching and research experience in a few UK and overseas universities. I have secured over £1m research grants as the Principal Investigator from EPSRC, Royal Society and US Air Force etc since 2007, and has published over 150 peer-reviewed papers, including over 80 SCI-indexed high-impact journal papers (cited 2200+ times by SCI with H=30 and 3500+ by GoogleScholar with H=35( I have served on scientific/advisory committees of over 35 international conferences and delivered many keynote/plenary lectures. I am a member of EPSRC Peer Review College and have reviewed proposals for many EU national research councils. I have been invited as an external examiner for PhDs worldwide and have graduated (as the first supervisor) over 10 PhDs and supervised 3 postdoctoral researchers.

    I am a Fellow of Institution of Structural Engineers UK (FIStructE) and a Chartered Engineer.
