He received his PhD in Civil Engineering from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in December 2004. He also holds two degrees, BEng in Civil & Structural Engineering and MEng (Res) in Structural Engineering awarded in 1997 and 2000, respectively, both from Tongji University, Shanghai, China.

Xiangming’s research covers a board range of topics in construction materials, with focus on cement and concrete, and structural engineering. In the area of Construction Materials, he focuses on advanced concrete technology such as extrusion, low carbon and energy efficient (through encapsulated phase-change materials (PCMs)) cementitious materials and energy efficient buildings, cement less but cement like materials such as magnesium oxychloride cement and geopolymer made from metakaolin, calcined clay, pulverised fly ash (PFA), mining waste (such as red muds) and/or ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) etc., testing and modelling of rheology and early-age engineering properties of cement-based materials, fracture testing and modelling of concrete, restrained shrinkage cracking of concrete, synthetic and/or natural fiber reinforced concrete, cement-based smart and functional materials for infrastructure, applications of nanotechnology in cement-based materials etc. In Structural Engineering, his research covers seismic testing, analysis and design of steel-concrete composite high-rise building, performance-based multi-hazards mitigation of building structures under extreme loadings, precast concrete segmental bridges, fiber-reinforced concrete ground slab, impact and fracture of natural fibre reinforced concrete, structural-function integrated structural panels, and numerical modelling of fracture and structural behavior of concrete and concrete structures which brings his expertise in construction materials and structural engineering under one umbrella.
