Biography

Dr Thai is a Senior Lecturer in Structural Engineering. He received his PhD in Structural Engineering from Sejong University in February 2010. Prior to joining the University of Melbourne, he was a Senior Lecturer at La Trobe University, an ARC DECRA Fellow at The University of NSW and a Postdoctoral Fellow at Hanyang University and Sejong University. He is a member of Standards Australia Committee BD32 on Composite Construction. He is also Chief Editor for Shock and Vibration, and Associate Editor for Advances in Civil Engineering. His research interests have been in the areas of steel, steel-concrete composite, laminated composites and functionally graded materials with an emphasis on developing robust computational tools for the advanced analysis and design purposes.
