RESEARCH INTERESTS:

  • Cellular and molecular biomechanics
  • Mechanics of soft materials
  • Tthin film mechanics and tribology

BIOGRAPHY:

Dr. Y. Lin received the BS and MS degrees in Engineering Mechanics from Tsinghua University in 1999 and 2001, respectively. He later obtained a MS degree in Applied Mathematics in 2006 and followed by a Ph.D. degree in Solid Mechanics in 2007 from Brown University. He 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. His research interests include cellular and molecular biomechanics, mechanics of soft materials, thin film mechanics and tribology.
