Dr Fei Jin
- Assistant Professor (Geotechnical Engineering) (Infrastructure & Environment)
I am a Chartered Engineer (CEng, UK) and a Professional Member of Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining(MIMMM). I obtained my BEng Degree in Geotechnical Engineering in 2009 from Southeast University, China. Then I joined the Geotechnical Research Group at the University of Cambridge and completed my PhD in 2014. I continued to work as a postdoc in Cambridge on the technical and commercial development of magnesia-based binders in Land Remediation and Energy Infrastructure. In 2017, I joined the University of Glasgow as an Assistant Professor in its Singapore campus.
