Dr An Deng (邓安) is an academic in civil engineering at the University of Adelaide. He received his Bachelor of Engineering from Central South University, Master of Science from Tongji University, and PhD from Penn State University before commencing his career in Hohai University. After his six-year career as an academic there, Deng relocated to Australia, where he accepted an academic position at the University of Adelaide.

In his academic career, Deng teaches courses in geotechnical engineering for students in civil and other related engineering degrees, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

As a supervisor, Deng provides guidance to students to conduct research in fulfilment of degree requirements. His guidance has helped graduate students in a broad range of engineering degrees: Bachelors, Honours, Masters by Coursework, Masters by Research, and PhDs. Deng also provides guidance to visiting scholars to extend research impact and improve teaching effectiveness.

In addition to teaching and supervision, Deng is committed to research. His research activities fall into the area of geotechnical engineering, with an emphasis on green materials, geomechanics, simulation & modelling, and ground improvement.

In research, Deng has been awarded Australian competitive grant ARC DP and Chinese competitive grant NSFC funds. He has published a number of research articles in major international and regional journals, and conference proceedings.

Deng provides service to the community. The services include the journal editorial board member, invited papers reviewer, invited grants assessor, and events helper.

“When I am not pinned to a computer screen, I spend time on family care, working in the garden, and trying hard not to go down too fast in outdoor ability.”

Natural resources are limited and will get depleted one day. One solution is the development of alternative, low-cost, free- or low-carbon emission, and high-performance materials. To researchers this solution represents a significant research need in a variety of aspects.

Deng develops and applies green materials in the field of geotechnical engineering. The green materials reuse by-products or wastes disposed of from factories or workshops. On top of the economic value, the green materials exhibit equal or better performance than quarry-based virgin materials.

"The green material development and its performance confirmation is a rewarding but challenging process." He focuses his research on identifying suitable waste materials and examining the behaviour of the waste-derived green materials to ensure their use in practical applications.

Deng is also interested in the area of ground improvement. "The work in this area troubleshoots problems surrounding the ground of concern, explores and recommends solutions to upscale the ground to field conditions." The solutions Deng has researched include electro-kinetic, vacuum preloading, geosynthetics, and grouting. "Each of the solutions is unique in suitability to cope with a particular ground problem and therefore subject to thorough prototyping and modelling work prior to the field applications."

"As the supervisor, I drive the research, but the journey in essence is rolled out by research students and scholars that I have supervised," explains Deng. With these research assistants, Deng has co-authored over 100 technical publications to date." In addition to growing research outputs, the students often bring in exciting inspirations and help move forward the research," Deng says.
