Professor Longbin Tao

Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering

Personal statement

Longbin Tao received his PhD from The University of Western Australia in 2002 for research on offshore hydrodynamics. He joined the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering at University of Strathclyde October 2017. Previously, he had held the Lloyd’s Register Chair Professor of Offshore Engineering at Newcastle University from 2009 to 2017. Before moving to the UK, he lectured at Griffith University in Australia from 2001 to 2008. Longbin’s primary research interests are in coastal and offshore hydrodynamics with applications in marine resource development. Prior to an academic career, he was employed as an engineer at Maritime Safety in China and naval architect at a shipbuilding company in Australia.
