Professional Interests

Kaijun Zhu was a Graduate Research Assistant in the Rail Transportation and Engineering Center (RailTEC) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he pursued a Master of Science in Civil Engineering with an emphasis on Structural Engineering. He obtained his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Southwest Jiaotong University, China in 2014. His research focused on eliminating the cracks developed around the rail end bolt-hole within rail joint sections among rail transit system.
