Jingjing Liu is a PhD candidate in the Department of Wood Science, timber engineering group under the supervision of Prof Frank Lam. His research interests lie on structural tests, finite element analysis and structural reliability analysis. His current project is to investigate the seismic performance of mid-rise Cross-Laminated Timber structures.

– Developing innovative shear cores using Cross-Laminated Timber panels and coupling beams for mid-rise wooden buildings.

– Investigating the structural behavior of typical connectors in North America`s heavy timber systems under complex stress using a mechanistic-based numerical model verified by corresponding connection tests.

– Customizing a computer program to conduct structural analysis and reliability analysis for the developed structural type using user-defined mechanistic-based connection models.
