Andrew Liew completed his Master in Civil Engineering at the Imperial College London, UK, focusing on structural design, mechanics, dynamics and computational engineering analysis. He pursued further research to complete his PhD on the analysis of structural steel elements. Outside of academia, Andrew Liew was a structural engineer at Arup in London, working on the redevelopment of King’s Cross in London and York University metro station in Toronto. Since moving to Switzerland, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Structural Engineering at ETH Zurich and works currently at the Block Research Group, where he is involved with guidance to students, assistance with the group’s computational framework, structural engineering, mechanics input, and experimental testing, with an interest in numerical methods using Python, NumPy, SciPy, MATLAB, vectorisation, and multiprocessing.
