Dr Shen gained extensive geotechnical and tunnel experience prior to joining Crossrail C121 as the lead design engineer of sprayed concrete primary lining designs. He has been awarded both MSc and PhD degrees of Civil Engineering from Imperial College London, and is a chartered engineer of ICE and a specialist of RoGEP. He worked in Los Angeles before moving to London where he made significant contributions to earthquake dynamic designs. His expertise and interests are applying numerical analysis to solve practical engineering challenges, fluent in finite element, finite difference, and discrete element methods and he has published several papers throughout his PhD works.
