Dr. Ni Junjun received his doctoral degree in 2017. During his Ph.D. study, his research was about the application of vegetation on slope stability and landfill cover.His research revealed the importance of hydrological reinforcement of plants on slope stability considering the effects of planting spacing and mixed plant types.
His research output may have huge potential for engineering application. During his research, he became experienced with full-scale field tests, small-scale laboratory tests and theoretical modelling. Around ten journal papers were published/submitted during his Ph.D. studies. Those journals include Géotechnique, the Canadian Geotechnical Journal, Computers and Geotechnics, etc.
