Personal profile


Youngho Kim received his Doctor of Engineering from Yonsei University in 2010. After completing the PhD studies, he worked at the Construction Engineering Research Institute (CERI) in Korea for 1 year as a post-doctoral researcher. He joined the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems (COFS) in Dec 2011. Now he is working for COFS as a Research Fellow. Youngho's research focuses on pile foundation design (onshore/offshore), offshore foundation Systems (anchoring system / jack-up structure), soil-substructure interactions, advanced finite element modelling (static or dynamic / LDFE / soil constitutive model) etc. Youngho is an integral part of the COFS collaborations with major Korean engineering companies and research institutions and he has worked on a number of ARC projects with Korean partners. He has published over 50 refereed journal and conference papers.
