Dr Jinlong Li is a Chartered Structural Engineer. With over 12 years of study/research experience at universities, Dr Li has a solid academic background covering a wide area of structural engineering, constitutive modelling, mechanics, advanced finite element modelling as well as practical design technics. His structural design experience covers civil and structural analysis and design, temporary works design, supervising and coordinating, structural appraisals, compliance with Eurocodes, British Standards, Codes of Practice, Highway and Railway Authority Standards, Network Rail CEM/CRE roles, Building Regulations and specifications, in the fields of building structures, highway and railway infrastructures such as footbridges, cycle hubs, station buildings, tunnels, arches and portals.
His industrial practice in the UK started in 2015 after obtaining his doctoral degree in Road Engineering at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. He had broadened his design capacity matrix while working for SWECO and Laing O’Rourke briefly before he re-joined INVVU in 2022. Before joining the research group in TUD in 2009, he was a PhD candidate in the Research Institute of Structural Engineering and Disaster Reduction at Tongji University (Shanghai, China). He was yet a lecturer in Shanghai City College in the same year. He received a BEng with ‘First Class Honours’ in Civil Engineering in 2006 and MSc in Structural Engineering in 2008.
About INVVU, Jin says “INVVU has a good working atmosphere, supportive culture, bosses that care for you, great colleagues, fulfilling and interesting projects – I knew I would come back when I decided to widen my design experiences in other sectors, and I am glad that this day is sooner than I expected”.
Jin is happy to share that he is a “cook delayed by my structural engineering career”.
