    • Yih-Chin Tai received a bachelor's degree in Physics from National Taiwan University, Taiwan, and Dipl.-Ing. and Dr.-Ing in Applied Mechanics from TU Darmstadt, Germany. He currently holds the position of full professor at Dept. Hydraulic and Ocean Engineering of Cheng Kung University, Taiwan. His research interests are in geophysical mechanics with applications to countermeasures against sediment-related disasters, such as debris flows, landslides, and flooding. It consists of experiments in laboratory, theoretical modeling and numerical implementation for high efficient MPI/GPU parallel computation. Besides, Dr. Tai is also developing a real-time simulation tool (the MoSES_xx package), which integrates the GPU-computational engine with a 3D-user-interactive illustration system (the ANSI-Platform) developed by OpenGL, openCV and Three.js. For purpose of hazard assessment or disaster mitigation, the MoSES-package is GIS-compatible, that the input data can be prepared by the GISs (arcGIS or QGIS) and the computed results can be shown either in the GISs or the ANSI-Platform.
