Zhong-qi Quentin Yue is a professor in geotechnical engineering at the Department of Civil Engineering, The University of Hong Kong (HKU). He obtained the BSc and MSc education in geology & earthquake from Peking University (1979-1986), and the PhD education in geotechnical engineering from Carleton University (1988-1992). Prior to joining HKU in December 1999, he had about ten-years rock and soil engineering experience at CIGIS in Beijing (1986-1988), IRC/NRC in Ottawa (1992-1996), and Halcrow in Hong Kong (1996-1999).

He has published 475 referred publications, delivered 227 lectures and/or keynotes at international and regional conferences and made 373 seminars at more than 150 universities and institutions worldwide. He is a member of ISRM, a council member of CSRME, a chartered geotechnical engineer in Hong Kong, an editorial board member of 10 scholarly journals, an academic committee member of 6 key research laboratories, as well as a peer reviewer of more than 500 papers from more than 90 scholarly international journals.

He has received some awards and recognitions including the NSERC-Canadian Government Laboratory Post-Doctoral Fellowship in 1992, the MAO Yi-Sheng Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering Youth Award in 2006, the NSFC Young Researcher Grant Award in 2017, the Excellent Contributions Award from IACMAG in 2008, the Outstanding Contribution in Reviewing Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering in 2017, the Outstanding Contribution Award from Chinese Alliance for Simulation-Based Engineering and Science, as well as three research project awards in the category of natural science from CSRME in 2018, 2019 and 2020, respectively.
