Assistant Professor Department of Ocean Science and Engineering

Dr Yuze Wang obtained her PhD degree in the University of Cambridge in 2019, and worked in Durham University, UK, as a postdoctoral research associate during 2019-2020 before she joined the Department of Ocean Science and Engineering, Southern University of Science and Technology, Shenzhen, China, as an Assistant Professor. Her current research interests are seabed stabilization, marine bio-geotechnics, marine energy geotechnics, and marine geotechnics from micro to macro. She has been doing significant research on theory of reactive fluid transport behavior in porous medium, the use of Microbial-Induced Carbonate Precipitation or biopolymers for soil stabilization. In recent years, Dr Wang has published more than 10 high-quality journal/top conference papers journals such as Geotechnique,JGGE,Engineering Geology, Geotextiles and Geomembranes and conference preceedings such as ISCMGE and ICEG) . She regularly serves as reviewer for several top journals including JGGE and ES&T, etc.
