Ming Xiao

Affiliate Researcher
Titles and Affiliations
Associate Professor of Civil Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering

Xiao’s research areas include (1) flow and particle transport in porous media, (2) performances of the built environment and infrastructure (such as levees, slurry walls, geosynthetically-reinforced bridge abutments, subgrade, etc.) under in-service conditions and/or extreme events (such as earthquakes), and (3) performances of civil infrastructures and permafrost coastal erosion due to permafrost degradation in the Arctic and their sociodemographic impacts.
