We are extremely pleased to announce that Fan Fei is joining the group as our first PhD student—receiving the prestigious Hong Kong PhD Fellowship. He is currently a final year undergraduate student in the Department of Civil Engineering at The University of Hong Kong. He has shown outstanding academic performance throughout his undergraduate years, which has been recognized by a number of awards including the C.L. Tse Prize in Civil Engineering, the Leung Ting Kui Scholarship, and Dean's honours lists in every academic year during his undergraduate studies. His Hong Kong PhD Fellowship is another firm evidence of his exceptional academic credentials.
Fei's PhD research will focus on the development of computational geomechanics and multiphysics approaches to the stability assessment of underground rocks subjected to complex structural and environmental loads.
