The University of Adelaide

The School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering is one of the top three schools in the Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences (ECMS). Its research quality is evidenced in the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) 2015 rating, placing the school above world standard with its rating of 5/5. The number of academic staff has been growing in the last few years and currently the School has a mix of about 30 full time academics across three disciplines: Water, Structural and Geotechnical/Mining Engineering. It provides an extremely collegial and collaborative research environment. Analytical and numerical research is strongly supported by several multi-core computer servers and a local computing technician, while experimental research enjoys the benefits of three laboratories (Structures, Geotechnical/Mining, and Water), a large workshop and several well-experienced laboratory technicians. Academics in the School have been actively involved in several research projects funded by government and industrial agencies, including Australian Research Council (ARC), Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO), Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), and Australian Cooperative Research Centre (CRC).

Giang D. Nguyen is currently an Associate Professor in the School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering at the University of Adelaide. He joined the University of Adelaide in July 2013 after a period of six years at the University of Sydney, as a Postdoctoral Research Associate, USyd Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer. Giang graduated from the University of Oxford in 2005 with a DPhil degree in Engineering Science (majoring in Computational Mechanics), after his M.Sc. degree also in Computational Mechanics from the University of Liege (Belgium, 1998) and a B.Eng. in Civil Engineering from the HoChiMinh City University of Architecture (Vietnam, 1996). His research spans across a few disciplines, including Geophysics, Structural, Geotechnical and Mining Engineering. Giang has 16 years of experience, since the start of his DPhil at Oxford in 2001, in the modelling and failure analysis of rocks, sea ice, concrete, soils, metals and composites at various scales (from millimetre to kilometres) in both industry (NASA U.S.A. 2005-2007) and fundamental projects (Australian Research Council, 2010-date).
