Xianda Shen has been appointed assistant professor of civil & environmental engineering at Clarkson University.
He received his Ph.D. in geosystems engineering and master of science degree in computational science engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, his master of science in tunnel and underground engineering from Tongji University, and his bachelor of science degree in civil engineering from Southwest Jiaotong University.
Shen’s research interests include multi-scale geomechanics, thermo-hydro-chemo-mechanical couplings in porous and fractured media, energy-storage systems, and the application of data-driven methods to geotechnical engineering.
He has co-published in Journal of Geophyscial Research, Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering, International Journal of Solids and Structures, International Journal for Numerical and Analytical Methods in Geomechanics, Acta Geotechnica, and Petroleum Geoscience.
Shen also serves as a reviewer for a number of academic journals, including International Journal of Rock Mechanics and Mining Science, Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering, Natural Resources Research, Bulletin of Engineering Geology and the Environment, Granular Matter, International Journal for Numerical and Analytical Methods in Geomechanics, International Journal of Damage Mechanics, and Géotechnique Letters.
Prior to joining Clarkson, he served as a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University.
