Dr. Jinyuan Liu, P.E., P.Eng., is a Professor of Geotechnical Engineering at Ryerson University. He has over 7-year industrial experience in various high profile projects: Working as a Tunnel Engineer with Jacobs Engineering Group in Detroit, MI, for a 12 km, 9 m diameter Upper Rouge Tunnel Project; As a Senior Geotechnical Engineer with STV Inc. on the East Side Access Project, a $6.8 billion transit tunnel project in NYC; As a Field Engineer for building protection during adjacent subway station excavation using compensation grouting and dewatering in Shanghai, China. He is a member of CGS, DFI, and CSCE and has served as Co-Editor for three International Conferences in the past. Currently, he is leading a research team in conducting research related to deep soil mixing to treat problematic soils including sensitive Champlain Sea clay and improve pile design in glacial deposits. Dr. Liu has published over 100 articles in refereed journals and conferences.
