Chang Ye  Gue

Ph.D. Student


Chang Ye Gue graduated with First Class Honours from Universiti Tenaga Nasional Malaysia (UNITEN) in 2011. He then worked for the largest geotechnical consultancy in Malaysia, G&P Geotechnics, as a geotechnical engineer for 6 months before pursuing his PhD at the University of Cambridge in January 2012, under scholarship from Laing O'Rourke.

Student C.Y.Gue is part of a team that fitted fibre optic sensors in the Post Office tunnel beneath Liverpool Street Station in order to study its behaviour in relation to a Crossrail tunnel being built underneath it. He will combine findings from this with further data from a similar deployment of this equipment during Crossrail excavations at Bond Street Station next year. He is also using centrifuge modelling to simulate the construction of a new tunnel beneath an existing tunnel.

He is supervised by Dr Mohammed Elshafie.
