• Computational geotechnical and/or geo-environmental engineering.
• Sensor technologies, digital twins, and AI in geotechnical/geo-environmental projects.
• Interactions of ground/underground structures with soil/rock for resilient infrastructure, including coastal and offshore.
• Environmental protection by land decontamination and landfill design.
• Hazard control of ground and underground structures for safe infrastructure, including coastal and offshore.
• Harvesting geothermal energy by ground source heat pumps.
• Application of natural materials in green construction for sustainable development.
