Dr Xiaoni Wu received her PhD from Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at National University of Singapore in 2017. She is now a postdoctoral research fellow at School of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Civil Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU).
Her research focuses on the theoretical and numerical study of geotechnical issues of offshore foundation systems. She has been working on the stability problem of suction caisson, suction embedded plate anchor and drag embedded anchor, and the development of numerical technique of large deformation finite element. She is now working on the response of monopile foundation for offshore wind turbines in the NSFC-RCUK_EPSRC Grant project “Extreme wind and wave loads on the next generation of offshore wind turbines” at SJTU.
