Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests mainly span from computational mechanics and structural optimisation to their applications in biomedical engineering such as tissue scaffolds, vascular stents, dental implants and drug delivery systems, particularly in optimally designing the microstructures of  biomedical devices in order to achieve desired mechanical and biochemical requirements. My research is highly interdisciplinary and at the interface of engineering, materials science and biomedicine.

•    Design of microstructural porous materials for biomedical engineering

•    Solid and fluidic characterizations for porous microstructures of cellular materials

•    Release mechanism and microstructural modeling/design of biodegradable systems

•    Meta-properties and their design optimization in engineering materials

•    Structural optimization: size, shape and topology

•    Mechanobiology; Cell mechanics; Computational tissue engineering

Biography

Yuhang Chen received his B.Eng. in Mechanics (2007) from Tongji University, China and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Sydney (USyd) (2011). He then completed a Postdoctoral Research  Fellowship at USyd during 2011-2012 and also worked as a visiting scholar in civil engineering at the Johns Hopkins University, USA in 2012. Yuhang joined the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Heriot-watt University, UK as a Lecturer in Computational Mechanics since March 2012. [Find more...]
