- Xiaowei was recruited as a Lecturer, which is funded by The Lloyd’s Register Education Trust (LRET), at COFS in September 2011. He firstly joined COFS in May 2010 as a visiting student following his 3 years study for the DPhil (PhD) degree in Geotechnical Engineering at Tianjin Universtiy, China. His current research is mainly on failure envelopes for subsea shallow foundations subjected to complex loading conditions.
- Key research
- Finite element analysis and design for shallow foundations in deep waters.
