Biography

Dr. BAI Wei joined the National University of Singapore as an Assistant Professor in Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in March 2009. From 1992, he studied at Dalian University of Technology, China, and received his Ph.D. there in Port, Coastal and Offshore Engineering in 2001. Following this, he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Chinese Academy of Sciences from 2001 to 2003. Dr. Bai was an academic visitor at Glasgow and Strathclyde Universities from April 2003. In April 2004, he joined the University of Oxford as a postdoctoral research assistant. From January 2007 to February 2009, he was a postdoctoral research associate at Manchester Metropolitan Univesity.

Dr. Bai's research interests conern the Computational Marine Hydrodynamics and Fluid Dynamics, with emphasis on the numerical simulation of wave interaction with offshore and coastal structures.
