• Biography

    Prof Ha Bui is an ARC Future Fellow and Head of the Department of Civil Engineering at Monash University. His primary research interests lie in computational mechanics and material modelling, with a particular emphasis on bridging scales in modelling the failure of geomaterials. The key objective of his research is to create “balanced” computational tools (i.e., between efficiency & mechanisms) to solve real-life engineering applications. He is the main developer and founder of GeoXPM (https://geoxpm.com), an innovative SPH continuum particle-based computing software designed for solving geomechanics & geotechnical engineering applications involving fractures and large deformations. He is the recipient of several prestigious awards and recognitions, including the 2021 ALERT Research Medal awarded by The Alliance of Laboratories in Europe for Education, Research and Technology (ALERT Geomaterials), the Future Fellowship Award from the Australian Research Council (ARC) and the JSPS Fellowship Award from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). Prof Bui is the Editor of Computers & Geotechnics (Elsevier), is Associate Editor of the European Journal of Environmental & Civil Engineering (Taylor & Francis) and serves on the Editorial Board for several esteemed journals, including Int. J Numerical & Analytical Methods in Geomechanics (Wiley), Materials & Designs (Elsevier), Canadian Geotechnical Journal, and Int J Rock Mechanics & Mining Science.
