Yuting Cao

Welcome! This is Yuting Cao (曹宇婷). I am a graduate student in Mechanical Engineering at University of Michigan. I'm interested in numerical modeling and simulation for complex system that include multi-phase flow, crystalization, and phase change using lattice Boltzmann method (LBM), phase-field method (PFM), etc. Before joining UMich, I obtained my Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering from Southeast University, China.
