Personal profile


Hoang Nguyen joined the Department of Mechanical and Construction Engineering in July 2020. Prior to this, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the School of Engineering, University of Glasgow for almost two years where he worked on the fracture analyses of graphite bricks in UK nuclear power plants within a project funded by EDF Energy. Before that, Hoang finished his PhD at Northumbria University where his work focused on the numerical prediction of mechanical behaviours of functionally graded microstructures by means of generalised continua and isogeometric analysis.

Research interests

Hoang’s research is mainly within the field of Computational Mechanics. Currently, his primary interest is in the data-driven approach to predict the performances of materials and structures in which the conservation laws are satisfied and the experimental data is used directly.

His research interests include:

  • Data-driven predictions of materials and structures
  • Finite element methods
  • Structural optimisation
  • Structural integrity
  • Mechanics of microstructures
  • High-performance computing
