Dr. Qiao Dong received the B.S. in civil engineering in 2003 and M.S. degree in roadway and railway engineering in 2006 from Southeast University, Nanjing, China and Ph.D. degree in civil and environmental engineering in 2011 from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA. From 2011 to 2016, he was a research associate in the University of Tennessee. He joint Southeast University since 2016 as a Professor. His research interests include pavement asset management based on data analysis and artificial intelligence, pavement distress non-destructive evaluation, pavement materials multiscale characterization and simulation.
Dr. Dong has worked on data driven pavement evaluation and management since 2006 and selected pavement data modelling and mining as the topic of his Ph.D. dissertation. He won the first prize in the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) data analysis contest in 2010. He was the PI or co-PI of several related research projects. He has published more than 100 research papers, and more than 30 of them focus the field of pavement data analysis. He is currently an active member of the Bituminous Materials Committee (BMC) of American Society of Civil Engineers, the Pavement Maintenance Committee (AHD20) of Transportation Research Board (TRB) and the Pavement Performance Evaluation Committee of the World Transportation Congress. He served as a young editor for the Journal of Infrastructure Preservation and Resilience and an editor of Coatings.
