About Me:

Yuchen is a 6th year 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).

Yuchen's work is in the news! Check out the packing of stars and phys.org news.
