Biography

Dr Yilin Gui joined the QUT in 2019 as a Senior Lecturer in Geotechnical Engineering. He was Lecturer in Geotechnical Engineering in Newcastle Univeresity, UK, and Research Fellow in Nanyang Technological University and Monash University. He obtained his PhD from UNSW Sydney and PG Certificate from Newcastle University, UK. He is a Fellow of Higher Education Academy. His research interests are focused on rock and soil mechanics, computational and constitutive modelling of geomaterials and Geoenvironmental Engineering and other related areas in Geotechnical Engineering and Mining Engineering. His current research projects include THM in rock mechanics, environmental impact on soil structures and application of computation methods in Geotechnics.

He welcomes outstanding PhD candidates who are interested in his research. The available scholarships can be found here. More information about PhD program application can be found here.

He has been active reviewers of more than 20 journals
