Zhuofu received his BEng degree in hydraulic engineering from Tsinghua University, China in 2015. Now he is a PhD candidate in Tsinghua University, China under the supervision of Professor Qiang Yang and a visiting student in Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. His doctoral work focuses on the deformation and cracking of arch dam and foundation based on geo-mechanical model test and non-linear finite element calculation. His current research topic at University of California, Berkeley is the pore pressure detection in soil during cracking using miniature fiber optic transducer.
