Biography: Chin Leo is a civil engineer with research and industry experience in geotechnical, geoenvironmental and infrastructure engineering. He obtained his PhD from the University of Sydney in 1994 and is currently an Associate Professor at SCEM, UWS. He began his research career in the 1990s studying groundwater and contamination problems in soils. During this period, he developed several numerical models for contaminant migration in porous media. Since early 2000s, he has been involved in poromechanics research dealing with consolidation, sedimentation-consolidation of soft soils, tunnel closure, vibrations of piles and foundations embedded in porous media. In the last 5 years, his research also focuses on the characterization and remediation of geomaterials, namely: EPS geofoam, red mud, high power ultrasound remediation of contaminated soils and characterization of sites using microtremor measurements. He regularly reviews for Computers and Geotechnics, International Journal for Numerical and Analytical Methods in Geomechanics, Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, and International Journal of Geomechanics, Geotextiles and Geomembranes.
