The Best Research Achievement in Research Career 【 display / non-display

Profile 【 display / non-display

  • Geomaterial is a mixture of solid, liquid and gas, which exhibits complex but fascinating behavior. I am tackling challenging topics on such material to overcome the limitations of current geomechanics. In particular, my primary approach is to develop a rational model to predict mechanical and hydraulic behavior of geomaterials with a smaller number of simplified assumptions.
