Dr. Chih-Ping Lin is currently a Distinguished Professor and the Chair in the Department of Civil Engineering and at the National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), Taiwan. He is also a member of the Disaster Prevention and Water Environment Research Center at NCTU. He received his Master of Science in Civil Engineering (1996), Master of Science in Electrical & Computer Engineering (1998), and Ph.D. (1999) degrees from the Purdue University, USA. He joined the faculty of NCTU as an assistant professor in 1999 and was promoted to full professor in 2006. He served as the Vice Chairman of the Department of Civil Engineering at NCTU from 2008 to 2010. His primary research interests are engineering monitoring based on electromagnetic waveguide and developments and applications of near-surface geophysics to engineering problems. Current research projects focus on solving geotechnical, geo-environmental, and water resources-related problems using geophysical methods, including quality inspection of ground improvement, non-destructive evaluation of dams, subsurface imaging of soil water content, investigation of soil and groundwater contamination, suspended sediment monitoring in rivers and reservoirs, and scour monitoring. He received the ASTM Hogentogler Award in 2008 and served on the board of the Environmental & Engineering Geophysical Society from 2010 to 2013.
