Dr Dongmin Yang
Dongmin Yang is a Lecturer in Structural and Materials Engineering at Leeds. His current research interests lie in two areas: Composites Engineering (materials, manufacturing and structures) and Computational Engineering (multiscale, multiphysics, multiphase coupling). With a background in manufacturing and later experience in structural and materials engineering, his cross-disciplinary research is at the interfaces of underpinning material science, emerging manufacturing technology and advanced structural analysis and design, with an aim to develop next-generation composites for aerospace, automotive and energy industries. He also develops computational techniques and deterministic models to address multiscale, multiphysics and multiphase coupling challenges across engineering disciplines.
