Dr. Meng, Fanzhen

Postdoctoral Fellow

I obtained my PhD degree in Geotechnical Engineering from Institute of Rock and Soil Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2015. Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow of the University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong Scholar), working with Dr. Louis Wong at the Department of Earth Sciences.  My current research mainly concentrates on rock mechanic problems under high stress condition, particularly concerning excavation induced seismicity (e.g., fault slip rockburst) in deep hard rock tunneling and deep mining. I am also interested in rock brittleness evaluation, shear behavior of hard rock joint under high normal stress and acoustic emission precursors of sudden rock failure.
