Professor Xu Chengshun, Ph.D., the recipient of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholar, is doctoral supervisor and Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, Civil and Transportation Engineering (FACTE) at Beijing University of Technology. She is also the Deputy Director of the Geotechnical Engineering Seismic and Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Committee of the China Earthquake Society and the Executive Deputy Director of the Key Laboratory of Urban and Engineering Safety and Disaster Mitigation of the Ministry of Education. She is mainly engaged in research on basic theory and methods of saturated soil dynamics, seismic performance evaluation of soil-structure interaction system, seismic disaster prevention of infrastructure structures and systems. She has made significant achievements in the research of static/dynamic behaviors of saturated soil under complex loading conditions, site failure and dynamic response analysis of site-pile-superstructure interaction system, and theory and methods of seismic design of subway station structures. She has been the principle investigator of 3 national key projects and 5 research projects funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), and was awarded the second prize of National Science and Technology Progress Award (ranked 5). She has published more than 70 papers as the first/corresponding author in the last 5 years.
