X. Frank XU
Xi Frank Xu received a B.E. degree in hydraulic engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1993, and a Ph.D. degree in civil engineering from Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Md, in 2005. Since 2005, he has been serving as an Assistant Professor in structural engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology. His research interests cover a broad range of topics on multiscale and stochastic modeling of complex engineering systems, including synthetic materials (composites, metamaterials, concrete, polycrystals), natural materials (soils, rocks, biomaterials), and natural hazards (earthquake, wind, flooding). The honors he received include the finalist honor in the 17th Annual Robert J. Melosh Competition for the Best Student Paper in finite element analysis in 2005, the Early Career Principle Investigator Award from the US Department of Energy in 2006, and the 2010 K.J. Bathe Award for the Young Researcher Best Paper Award in the Field of computational engineering.
