Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Zang is a Reader and the Deputy Director of Centre for Infrastructure, Geotechnics and Water Engineering (IGWE), in the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, University of Bath. 

Dr Zang is leading one of the world leading groups working on investigating violent wave impact on coastal and offshore structures, developing marine renewable energy, and developing advanced numerical methods for accurately modelling coastal & urban flooding and wave-structure interaction. She has led/participated in a number of national and international collaborative research projects, which include extreme wave impact on offshore wind turbine foundations, breaking wave impact on coastal protection structures like seawalls and breakwaters, optimisation and survivability of marine renewable energy devices, and the development of advanced computational fluid dynamics tools for accurate simulation of complex free surace flows and wave-structure interactions etc. 

She has been an active member in promoting international research exchanges and networking. She has chaired a couple of major international conferences in her field; and was a past chair of PRIMaRE Prtnership for Research in Marine Renewable Energy. She is an Associate Editor of OMAE journal, and Editorial Board Member of a couple of journals.
