Personal profile

Research

Dr Teng Liang joined the University of Dundee in 2012 as a PhD student in Geotechnical Engineering and received his PhD degree in 2015. Now he works in the University of Dundee as a postdoctoral research associate on an EPSRC project (EP/M020355/1): Rooting for sustainable performance. His research interests are largely cross-disciplinary and include: (i) modelling of 3D plant root architecture (ii) seismic soil-structure interaction, (iii) slope reinforcement by traditional and environmental means.
