Teaching expertise

I am currently lecturing the undergraduate course STRESS AND FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS at the University of Newcastle and I have also lectured graduate courses RISK ASSESSMENTS IN GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING at the Colorado School of Mines, USA and NUMERICAL METHODS IN CIVIL ENGINEERING at Wuhan University, China (one of the top ten universities in China). My teaching is well received by students and my evaluations on the key questions are above average. I have always tried to 1) focus on basic concepts, 2) explain complicated theory clearly, and 3) keep students engaged by asking questions in class. I also enjoy working with my graduate students
