Dr Xilin Xia is an assistant professor working on computational modelling of natural hazards and their impacts. His research interests cover computational hydraulics, high-performance computing, machine learning and their applications in modelling and understanding hydraulic, hydrological, and geotechnical processes in both natural and urban environments. His research focus on developing novel methods to facilitate the risk management of extreme weather induced hazards and enhance resilience of infrastructure.
Before joining Birmingham in May 2022, he lectured at Loughborough University and was a Research Associate at Newcastle University. He received his BEng and MEng from Wuhan University, China in 2010 and 2012, and his PhD from Newcastle University in 2017.
|Apr 2, 2022||He will take the position of Assistant Professor in Resilience Engineering at the University of Birmingham from 3 May.|
