University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
Prof. Frank Lam is Senior Chair Professor for Wood Building Design and Construction at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, and a fellow of Canadian Society of Civil Engineers (CSCE) and International Academy of Wood Science (IAWS). Prof. Lam’s main research interests are in the development of fundamental knowledge on the performance of solid sawn timber, wood-based composites, and engineered wood systems. The aim is to qualify performance and apply the developed basic knowledge to improve the utilization of structural wood products by addressing issues relevant to the forest products industries in the field of timber engineering and wood-based composites mechanics.
