Assistant Professor Department of Ocean Science and Engineering

Dr Yong Fu obtained his PhD degree in the National University of Singapore in 2018, and worked as a research fellow during 2018 and 2020 before he joined the Department of Ocean Science and Engineering, Southern University of Science and Technology, Shenzhen, China, as an Assistant Professor. His research interest and expertise include offshore geotechnical engineering (i.e. deepwater anchors, spudcans and pipelines), underground space technology (i.e. development of horizontal DCM equipment), physical experiments (i.e. laboratory, centrifuge and field experiments), large deformation finite element modelling (i.e. CEL and RITSS methods). In recent years, Dr Fu has published more than ten high-quality international journal papers in world-renowned geotechnical journals such as Geotechnique, Canadian Geotechnical Journal, Computers and Geotechnics, Geotechnical Testing Journal. In addition, he also served as the reviewer of several international journals.
