Yong Liang is currently a postdoc researcher at the University of California, Berkeley. He obtained his doctor’s degree from Tsinghua university, China, in 2019. His research efforts focus on algorithm development based on the material point method (MPM). He proposed two newly numerical schemes during his Ph.D. research: the eXtended Material Point Method (XMPM) for dynamic fracture, and the Staggered Grid Material Point Method (SGMP) for efficiently eliminating the cell crossing noise existing in the original MPM. His current research interests include applying the MPM in geotechnical mechanics based on high-performance computing and the MPM visualization.
