Personal statement

Chua Yie Sue joined Monash University as an academic staff in year 2019. She was a Research Fellow working in a modular construction research project under Sembcorp-NUS Corporate Laboratory, National University of Singapore. She also attached in Surbana Jurong working on modular building for Housing and Development Board (HDB) Singapore. She completed her PhD from NUS in year 2017. Her research interests focus on global behaviour and robustness of high-rise modular construction, design of connection and design of protective material against impact.
