Research Interest
Through my experience in real-time sensing and cyberinfrastructure, I have become interested in working on coupled Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical modelling with application to environmental engineering and geophysical problems. My research aims to develop a physical, mathematical and computational model for the virtual simulation of non-isothermal multiphase porous materials, fluid and fluid-structure interaction, earthquakes, catastrophic landslide, hydraulic fracturing, dams and levees.
