Profile Summary

Denvid obtained his Bachelor degree with first class honors and Master degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 2004 and 2006 respectively, and got his second Master degree from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2009. He then received his Ph.D. in the field of structures and materials from MIT in 2012. Prior to joining the City University of Hong Kong as an assistant professor in August 2012, he worked as a postdoctoral associate at MIT. Denvid got various awards and scholarships during his undergraduate and graduate studies including the Croucher Foundation Scholarship (2006-2009) and the Marvin E. Goody Award (2007). He was named as one of the Harvey Fellows in 2011. His research focuses on the multiscale modeling of organic-inorganic system, moisture-induced debonding, durability of concrete-epoxy system and fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in structural rehabilitation. To date, Denvid has attracted over HK$10 million fund in total for research and teaching development. He is currently the editorial board member of several international journals including Composites Part B: Engineering, which ranks top 5% in Engineering Multidisciplinary category in ISI. He has published more than 80 referred journal and conference articles and has delivered more than 25 invited talks around the world. Recently, Denvid has been nominated and selected as a Founding Member of the Young Academy of Sciences of Hong Kong (YASHK), and has received one of The President's Awards from the City University of Hong Kong, in recognition of his remarkable academic achievement.
