About Me:

From 2014 to 2020, Yuchen was a graduate student at Duke Physics, mentored by Josh Socolar and Bob Behringer.

His Ph.D. involves experiments and simulations of granular materials made of star-shaped particles, trying to understand how they gain an extra rigidty when their arms are long (shown in the first picture below).

After graduation, he moved to Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) as a postdoc researcher with Dr. Yifan Wang
