Graduating from Huazhong University of Science & Technology, Wuhan, China in January of 1982 with a Bachelor of Engineering Mechanics, Dr. Song-Ping Zhu went to the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, U.S.A., where he earned his Master of Science in Engineering (Applied Mechanics) degree in May, 1985, Master of Science in Applied Mathematics in May, 1988 and Ph.D in Fluid Mechanics in December, 1987. His dissertation entitled “Open Channel Flow Near the Resonance Speed” was completed under the supervision of the late Professor C.-S. Yih, who was the Stephen P. Timoshenko University Professor of Fluid Mechanics.
Upon graduating from The University of Michigan, Dr. Song-Ping Zhu took a Research Fellow position at the Centre for Water Research, The University of Western Australia and worked there for two years before moving to the Department of Mathematics, The University of Wollongong, Australia in January 1991 to take a Lecturer position. He was promoted to a Senior Lecturer at the beginning of 1995 and then to an Associate Professor at the beginning of 1997. Being promoted to full professor in 2007, he was promoted to Senior Professor in 2015, an honour that has only been given to a small number of faculty members at the University of Wollongong to recognise their achievements in research excellence beyond professorial level.
