Dr Lihai Zhang


Associate Professor Lihai Zhang is a staff in the Department of Infrastructure Engineering, Melbourne School of Engineering at The University of Melbourne, and also in the Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash University. He has extensive experience in multidisciplinary research and program development with successful track record in both Civil Engineering and Biomedical Engineering areas. His work on life-cycle performance of bridges under heavy trucks in conjunction with Non-destructive Testing techniques has built strong links with industry both nationally and internationally (e.g. VicRoads, Roads and Maritime Services, Australia). He is also innovatively applying his Civil Engineering knowledge in his Biomedical Engineering research by working with Epworth Hospital and Johnson & Johnson Medical. This gives him a leading advantage and a unique angle to solving outstanding human health problems in the areas of osteoporotic bone fracture healing and osteoarthritis.


Currently, Associate Professor Zhang is Deputy Editor of Australian Journal of Mechanical Engineering and Electronic Journal of Structure Engineering.
