Dr. Yi joined NTU as an Assistant Professor in 2016. Before that, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the University of Alberta, Canada, from 2013 to 2016. Dr. Yi obtained his PhD degree from Southeast University, China, in 2013. He was an academic visitor in the University of Cambridge, UK, from 2009 to 2010.

Dr. Yi’s research areas include geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering, sustainable construction materials, and waste treatment for civil engineering applications. Specifically, he focuses on (1) sustainable stabilization of problematic soils (e.g. soft clay, contaminated soil, and expansive soil) using industry by-products/wastes, (2) durability of stabilized soils in marine environment, and (3) carbonation of solid wastes for CO2 sequestration and heavy metal immobilization.

Dr. Yi is serving as an Associate Editor for ASCE Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering and an Editorial Member for ICE Ground Improvement. He is a member of ISSMGE technical committee ‘Sustainability in Geotechnical Engineering (TC307)’ and ASCE Geo-Institute Soil Improvement Committee.
