EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment: Resilience in a Changing World (FIBE2)



With his passion in improving civil infrastructure systems using green and sustainable technologies, Tianzheng is currently researching the application of microbially induced carbonate precipitation (MICP) for stabilisation of road foundation, a multi-disciplinary research topic at the confluence of microbiology, chemistry and geotechnical engineering. He is supervised by Dr. Stuart Haigh and co-supervised by Prof. Abir Al-Tabbaa and Dr. Ioannis Brilakis.

Before coming to Cambridge, Tianzheng Fu finished his Master of Engineering degree and Bachelor of Engineering degree at Tongji University, China, specialised in Structural Engineering. During his previous studies, he leaded several research projects, including 'Development of a new joint for buckling restrained brace in diagrid tube structures', 'assessment of the wind resistance performance of Ningbo Changhong bridge', 'Design of tuned mass damper for Zhongxing bridge', and 'Whole-life performance assessment of Taizhou Yangtze River bridge'. He was awarded the China National Scholarship, the B-ENERGY Scholarship, the Intertek Scholarship, and the Tongji Scholarship of Excellence. In 2018, he was granted an invention patent for his design of a new joint for diagrid tube structures.
