Dr. Qiu's teaching interests include both undergraduate and graduate level courses in soil mechanics and foundation engineering, and graduate level courses in slope stability, retaining walls, seepage, and soil dynamics.
Dr. Qiu's research interests are in the areas of geotechnical engineering and engineering mechanics including soil-structure interaction, large strain consolidation, solid-fluid dynamics, liquefaction in layered soil system, and contaminant transport in saturated soil.
