FENG Xingya
Assistant Professor


Dr Xingya Feng is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Ocean Science and Engineering, Southern University of Science and Technology, Shenzhen, China. Dr Feng obtained his B.Eng. in Hydraulic Engineering from Hohai Unviersity in 2011, and Ph.D. in Oshore Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2016. From 2016 to 2019, he was a Postdoc Researcher in NUS and the University of Oxford.

Dr Feng's research focuses on hydrodynamic analysis of nonlinear wave-structure interactions. His work includes nonlinear wave theory and wave interactions with oshore structures, numerical modelling of complex oshore oating systems and computational uid dynamics. His research interest includes environmental uid mechanics, oshore and coastal engineering, and oshore renewable energy.
