John Ting is a Professor of Civil Engineering and previously a tenured associate professor at the University of Toronto, Canada and postdoctoral research fellow and lecturer at California Institute of Technology, USA.
Between 1999 and 2017, he served continuously in senior administration at the University of Massachusetts Lowell as Chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Dean of Engineering, Vice-Provost for Enrollment and Senior Advisor to the Provost.
Ting has been involved in teaching, research and software development in civil engineering in the areas of geotechnical engineering, geotechnical centrifuge modeling, frozen soil behavior, computer modeling of particulate materials using discrete element modeling, soil-structure interaction and integral abutment bridge design.
He has published widely and has helped obtain and directly participated in over $2.8 million in externally funded research in geotechnical engineering and incorporating Service-Learning in engineering education. He has taught more than 20 different undergraduate and graduate courses in civil engineering and computer programming at Caltech, University of Toronto and UMass Lowell.
