Dr Chengguo Zhang received his B.E. in Mining Engineering from China University of Mining and Technology in 2010 and Ph.D. in Mining Engineering from UNSW Sydney in 2015. Dr Zhang works in the discipline of mining engineering, particularly in mine geomechanics research throughout his career, aiming to improve safety and sustainability in mines by conducting fundamental and applied research. Specifically, his research interest focuses on the critical areas in the mining industry, such as dynamic rock mass failures, the interaction of mining and groundwater, and mine data analysis and visualisation. His recent research focuses on integrating data analysis and visualisation technologies into the assessment of rock mass behaviour and management of geotechnical risks in deep mining environments, with more emphasis on the hard rock mines. His research leads to novel and unique solutions that previously have limited understanding and directly applies and translates to industry practices.
