Asst Prof Fu Yuguang
Assistant Professor, School of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Dr. FU Yuguang is currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in civil engineering from Tongji University, China in 2012 and 2014, respectively. He earned his Ph.D. in civil engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2019. Prior to joining NTU in 2021, he was a research scientist at Embedor Technologies to commercialize the sensor technology developed in the Ph.D. study, funded by NSF-SBIR. He then became a postdoctoral research associate in the Resilient Extra-Terrestrial Habitats Institute at Purdue University, funded by NASA. His research objective is to advance state-of-the-art smart IoT sensing and digital twin modeling techniques for structural health monitoring and digital construction management to make our built environment sustainable and resilient.
