Richard Liew is a Professor and the Program Director of Hazard, Risk and Mitigation in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the National University of Singapore. The main focus of his research is on the development of sustainable metal-composite technologies for offshore, marine and infrastructural works. These investigations have ranged from technologies for prefabrication production of steel structures for high-rise and large span systems at one extreme to design for fire hazards and extreme loadings for structures in marine and defence related industries at the other end of the spectrum. Arising from this work, he has co-authored 5 books and generated more than 300 technical publications. He is an editorial board member of 8 journals. He interacts closely with the industry in the Asia Pacific region serving as an expert and technical advisor. He chairs numerous international and local committees related to standards and specifications of steel and composite structures. He is a registered professional engineer in Singapore, an ASEAN chartered professional engineer and a Chartered Engineer in the United Kingdom. He is a Chartered Engineer in UK, a Professional Engineer in Singapore, an ASEAN Chartered Professional Engineer, a Fellow of the Academy of Engineering Singapore, a Honorary Fellow and the Past President of Singapore Structural Steel Society and Honorary Fellow of Hong Kong Institute of Steel Construction.
