Personal profile


Bui is an ARC Future Fellow and the founder of Monash Computional Geomechanics (MCG) Lab in the Department of Civil Engineering at Monash University, Australia. His research focuses on bridging scales in modelling localised failure of engineering materials, along with advancing mathematical models to solve multi-physics problems in geomechanics. The key objective of his research is to develop “balanced” computational tools (i.e., between efficiency and mechanisms) to solving real-life engineering applications. He is the recipient of several prestigious awards and recognitions, including the 2021 ALERT Research Medal awarded by The Alliance of Laboratories in Europe for Education, Research and Technology (ALERT Geomaterials), the Future Fellowship Award from the Australian Research Council (ARC) and the JSPS Fellowship Award from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). He is the Editor of Computers & Geotechnics (01/2024), is an Associate Editor of the European Journal of Environmental and Civil Engineering (EJECE) and serves on the Editorial Board for several esteemed journals, e.g., Computers & Geotechnics, Int J Numerical & Analytical Methods in Geomechanics, Materials & Design, Canadian Geotechnical Journal among several other journals.
