I recieved my B.S. degree in Structural Engineering from Chang'an University, Xi'an, China in 2000, M.S. in Geotechnical Engineering from Southeast University, Nanjing, China in 2003. Then I came to Clarkson University, NY and received my M.S. degree in Civil Engineering in 2005. At Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH, I studied sensor technoglogy for infrastructure monitoring and numerical computations. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering in 2009. After graduation, I worked as a research associate in Louisiana Transportation Research Center (LTRC) for two years on structure monitoring, LRFD design of deep foundations, and in-situ testing technology.
My research focuses on interdisciplinary aspects of civil engineering, sensor technology, and advanced numerical simulation. The goal is to understand the basics of engineering problems and to find solutions and to improve current design practice.
