Academic qualifications

  • Ph.D. Candidate in Geotechnical Engineering, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, 2019 - now
  • M.Sc. in Civil Engineering, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, 2017 - 2018
  • Bachelor in Civil Engineering, Chengdu University of Technology, 2012 - 2016

Research interests

  • Physical model test on marine reclamation
  • Influence of different factors (e.g. initial water content, salinity, dip angle) on soil behavior
  • Numerical modelling of sedimentation and consolidation

Topic:ESimulation of whole process of marine reclamation in laboratory

  • Contribution: Proposed an equipment to simulate the whole process of marine reclamation from dredging soils, sedimentation, self-weight consolidation to consolidation and soil improvement.
  • Significance: Improved the laboratory test method for reclamation research through providing an approximate in-situ condition without significant disturbance on soils so that the sedimentation and consolidation of soils can be studied in the same equipment.
