Biography

Dr. Yalin Dong received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from University of Science and Technology of China in 2005 and 2008 respectively, and his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University in 2013. His research interests lie in applying theoretical and numerical methods to interpret and solve engineering problems at micro and nano scale. One aspect of his research is to use atomistic modeling, continuum methods, and multiscale methods to investigate mechanical, thermal and electrical properties of materials. Another aspect is to develop novel and robust numerical methods, and make them available to the research community. His research topics include friction, adhesion, wear and lubrication at micro/nano scales, laser-matter interaction in material processes, and energy transport at interfaces
