Dr. YANG En-Hua is assistant professor with the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Nanyang Technological University. Prior to joining NTU, Dr. Yang was a forensic engineer in Exponent’s Buildings and Structures practice. He received his PhD degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Michigan. Dr. Yang specializes in the development of sustainable infrastructure through the innovative construction materials technology. His principal areas of expertise are strain hardening cementitious composites ECC, composite micromechanics, material characterization, and material microstructure analysis and tailoring. He is experienced in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building rating system and is a LEED Accredited Professional certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. Dr. Yang is a board member of the ASCE-Singapore session and is also a committee member of ACI Technical Committee 130 Sustainability of Concrete.
