Professor Yu Bai serves as Professor of Structural Engineering in the Department of Civil Engineering at Monash University Australia. His work experience and expertise emphasis research and development of structural systems through modern building technologies (such as modular construction and robotic construction) and using complementary material advantages (such as fibre reinforced polymer composites in combination with concrete, steel and timber). His researches have attracted strong governmental, industrial and institutional supports to develop lightweight and durable composites structures and modern building approaches through design for manufacturing and assembly and construction automation. He was an inaugural recipient of the ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award and has published about 180 journal papers with a total of citation over 5000. In addition to highly cited publications in quality journals and advisory services to professional committees in industry and government, his research outcomes have also led to applications in engineering practices.
