Beijing Jiaotong University, China


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, USA, in 2005. He serves as a Professor of civil engineering at Beijing Jiaotong University, Beijing, China. His research interests cover a broad range of topics on multiscale and stochastic modeling of complex engineering systems, including synthetic and natural materials (composites, metamaterials, concrete, polycrystals, soils, rocks, and biomaterials) and dynamics of natural hazards (earthquake, wind, and flooding). The honors Xu 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 in the field of computational engineering.
