Dr. Ling is a professor of Geotechnical Engineering at Columbia University. He obtained his bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Kyoto University, Japan, and his master's and doctoral degrees from the University of Tokyo. He became a visiting/research assistant professor, and subsequently assistant professor at the University of Delaware (1994-1998). He joined Columbia University in 1998 and was promoted to full professor in 2007. He was a visiting associate professor at Harvard University in spring 2006.

His major fields of research include geosynthetic-reinforced soil structures, soil constitutive modeling, geotechnical earthquake engineering, numerical and centrifuge modeling. Recently, he has also looked into rainfall-induced slope instability (geotechnical failures due to typhoons), in addition to earthquake induced deformation and failure of geosystems. Ground deformation due to deep excavation is one of his most recent research topics. He collaborates actively with international institutions/ agencies. He has made several reconnaissance trips related to the typhoon and earthquake disasters.

Dr. Ling is the Editor-In-Chief for Transportation Infrastructure Geotechnology, Associate Editor for the ASCE Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering as well as the editorial board member for a few other journals. He serves on several technical committees in the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, ASCE Engineering Mechanics Institute and ASCE Geo-Institute. Dr. Ling received the Career Award from the National Science Foundation in 2001. He was a recipient of the Aitalyev Medal from the Kazakhstan Geotechnical Society in 2013 and the IGS Award from the International Geosynthetics Society in 2014. Shijiazhuang Railway Institute (China) granted Dr. Ling with an honorary professorship in 2014.

Dr. Ling has published extensively in major journals and conferences. He has also organized several major conferences in New York and abroad (such as Rome and Bologna, Italy).
