Research student


Tianzheng Fu is a research student at the University of Cambridge. He is currently conducting research on the application of microbially induced calcium carbonate precipitation (MICP) to road sub-layers to achieve self-strengthening and self-repairing properties. 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 in Civil Engineering at Tongji University, China, specialised in Structural Engineering. During his previous studies, he leaded several research projects, including the development of a new joint for buckling restrained brace in diagrid tube structures, the assessment of the wind resistance performance of Ningbo Changhong bridge, the design of tuned mass damper for Zhongxing bridge, and the 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.
