Xiaojun Wei is a Professor of Bridge Engineering at the School of Civil Engineering, Central South University, China, after holding a position of Associate Professor of Bridge Engineering from Feb 2019 to Dec 2020 at the same university. Before moving to Central South University, he was a Research Fellow with the Humans and Structures Laboratory at the University of Warwick. He obtained his PhD from the Dynamics and Control Group at the University of Liverpool in 2015, his MEng in Bridge Engineering and BEng Civil Engineering from Central South University, China, in 2011 and 2008.
His current research interests are in the area of structural construction, maintenance and vibration control, e.g. 1) design, analysis, and application of nonlinear energy sink; 2) suppression of wind-induced vibrations in long-span bridges; 3) analysis and Control of human-induced vibrations in slender and flexible footbridges; 4) smart construction and maintenance of bridges using artificial intelligence techniques.
He is an author of around 40 peer-reviewed papers, and a Co-Investigator for a UK QR Global Challenging Research Fund, a National Science Fund of China, and an Innovation-Driven Fund of Central South University.
He is an invited reviewer for more than 20 international journals. He received Outstanding Reviewer Award from four Journals. He has active collaborations with a number of prestigious universities, such as University of Liverpool (UK), University of Warwick (UK), University of Exeter (UK), University of Swansea (UK), Liverpool John Moores University (UK), Politecnico di Torino (Italy) as well as University Iuav of Venice (Italy).
