Welcome Prof. Haitao Yu, Tongji University, China to be the TPC!


Prof. Haitao Yu, Tongji University, China


Prof. Yu specializes in the seismic fundamental theories and test technologies of underground structures. The accomplishments have been successfully applied in a number of significant national projects such as the super-long immersed tunnel of the Hongkong-Zhuhai-Macau linkage. He has been the principal investigator of 3 research projects supported by the National Science Foundation of China, 2 research sub-projects supported by the National Key Research and Development Plan of China, and 7 research projects supported by the provincial governments. He has won various awards including the first prize for Science and Technology awards from the Shanghai Municipal Government (second-place), etc. He has published 120 journal papers (55 SCI-index journal papers, 4 ESI highly cited papers, 1 hot paper, H-index 21) and have been invited to give oral presentation more than 40 times including 3 plenary speeches and 20+ keynote lectures, and organized/chaired/co-chaired 10+ international conferences. He is a lifetime member of the American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA), and member of the Technical Community on Underground Storage and Utilization (USUTC), ARMA, as well as a leader of the group “Seismic, Monitoring, Hazards & Risking” in USUTC, ARMA. He is also a corresponding member of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE). He also serves as a member of Doctor Dissertation committee in Purdue University (US) and Ghent University (Belgium). He obtained a number of young talent awards including the Excellent Young Scientist Award from the National Natural Science Foundation of China (2019) and the Shanghai Youth Scientist Talents Award from the Shanghai Association for Science and Technology (2020). In addition, he worked as reviewer for more than 70 international journals and conferences, and received a number of outstanding reviewer awards from international journals such as Tunnelling and Underground Space Technology, Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering, Construction and Building Materials, and Applied Mathematical Modelling.
