Dr. Biao Li is an Associate Professor of Geotechnical Engineering at Concordia University. He joined Concordia in Aug. 2016. Previously, he obtained a B.Sc. and a MASc from China University of Geosciences Beijing, and latterly a Ph.D. from the University of Calgary, Canada. His research expertise is in experimental and computational geomechanics, thermal-hydro-mechanical coupling, soil-structure interaction, and geophysics. He was selected as a future leader of the American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA) in 2021. He serves as editorial board members of Bulletin of Engineering Geology and the Environment; Marine georesources & geotechnology; Journal of Central South University: Science & Technology of Mining and Metallurgy; and International Journal of Geotechnical Engineering
