Yin Wang, Ph.D, Ph.D supervisor, is a professor of Infrastructure Geotechnics at Dalian University of Technology within Infrastructure Engineering.

My work has ranged from fundamental geotechnical studies into the mechanical response of marine soils to leadership of cross-disciplinary initiatives spanning the engineering of offshore resource exploration and development. The work has been primarily focused on the offshore traditional & renewable energy industries, but I have enjoyed spin-offs ranging from the design of novel offshore construction machinery to remote monitoring technologies for ocean environment.

I work closely with other disciplines, where a ‘joined-up’ approach, or a fresh perspective allows progress to be made. For example, collaboration across geotechnics, structures, fluids and metocean has been used to develop more reliable forecasts of offshore facility behaviour by properly capturing coupled behaviour. Additionally, work with novel sensing and control techniques allows us to detect the mechanical properties of seabed sediments in new ways.

Particular use has been made of two novel research techniques: (i) Database Aided design (DatAD) for offshore foundations of offshore wind turbines, oil & gas platform, island filling, etc; and (ii) Smart numerical analysis strategies based extended DEM (CFD-DEM, X-DEM). Our ‘DatAD’ technique development in collaboration with the marine geotechnics team of NGI is used in several offshore wind turbine projects in Guangdong.

Before joining Dalian University of Technology in 2013, I worked for Gillette brand of Procter & Gamble at London R&D center as an assistant scientist. I obtained my bachelor and master degree from Jilin University, China and obtained my Ph.D degree from The University of Edinburgh, UK.

I am the awardee of the Royal Society Newton Award, the Principle Investigator of several research projects supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, Chinese government, and the Royal Society UK. I have authored 2 books, and >100 journal/conference publications. I am a TCP Member of the International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE), the Vice Secretary-general of the Marine Engineering Geology Commission (C34) of The International Association for Engineering Geology and Environment (IAEG), Young Member of Chinese Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering.
