Dr. Yi is an Associate Professor in CEE, NTU. He is also the Deputy Co-Director of Surbana Jurong-NTU Corporate Laboratory, set up to develop next-generation sustainable solutions to tackle industrial and complex urban challenges, with a total fund of $61 million. Dr. Yi obtained his Bachelor's, Master's, and PhD degrees from Southeast University in 2004, 2008, and 2013, respectively. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the University of Alberta from 2013 to 2016, and an Academic Visitor in the University of Cambridge from 2009 to 2010.

Dr. Yi’s research areas generally include geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering, sustainable construction materials, and waste treatment for civil engineering applications. Recently, his research focus on (1) development of sustainable construction materials by 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 Associate Editor for ASCE Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering and Editorial Member for ICE journals of Geotechnical Engineering and Ground Improvement. He is also serving as the Secretary for ISSMGE Technical Committee of Sustainability in Geotechnical Engineering (TC307), as well as ASCE Geo-Institute Soil Improvement Committee member and Singapore Standards Council Technical Committee member (Civil and Geotechnical Work).
