Yeguang Xue

Applied and Computational Mechanics

Brief Introduction

Yeguang Xue is currently a 3rd year Ph.D. student in Mechanical Engineering Department at Northwestern University. He is now working with Professor Yonggang Huang. He has wide interests in research topics including:

  • Mechanics modeling and design of stretchable electronics
  • Finite element and mesh free methods in computational mechanics
  • Multi-scale modeling of advanced materials

Yeguang has published >10 papers in journals, including sister journals of Science and Nature, top mechanics journal JMPS. He was invited as reviewer for Journal of Applied Mechanics (Transactions of the ASME).

Recent News
