Personal profile

Biography

Dr. Zhang is a Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering at Monash University and an Editor-in-Chief of Elsevier Journal Tunnelling and Underground Space Technology (JCR-Q1, IF=2.419)Dr. Zhang received his PhD (Geomechanics) from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). Prior to joining Monash, he was a postdoctoral researcher at EPFL and Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge.

Dr. Zhang’s GeoExtremes Lab focuses on the development and application of experimental techniques and multiphysics computational tools to understand the progressive failure of geomaterials and structures under extreme conditions such as natural hazards (e.g., earthquake, landslides and explosive volcanic activity) and human-made disasters (e.g., nuclear power plant explosion, terrorist attacks, rock bursts and induced earthquakes).

Dr. Zhang has been invited to review proposals for Australian Research Council (ARC), Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), National Center of Science and Technology Evaluation of Kazakhstan (NCSTE), and National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), PhD and Master theses from Australian and overseas Universities, and more than 30 international journals in the fields of geomechanics, tunnelling and impact engineering.
