Dr. Yuan Lin
Dr. Lin joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the University of Hong Kong in 2008 after serving a brief appointment at Brown University as a post-doctoral research associate.
Dr. Lin obtained a MS degree in Applied Mathematics in 2006 from Brown University, followed by a Ph.D. degree in Solid Mechanics in 2007.
Dr. Lin received the BS and MS degrees in Engineering Mechanics from Tsinghua University in 1999 and 2001, respectively.
