Xuan Hu is a graduate student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. He completed his Bachelor’s Degree at Wuhan University in 2017 and earned his Master’s Degree at the University of California, Berkeley in 2021. Currently, he is a PhD student working under the guidance of Professor Shaofan Li. Xuan’s primary research interests lie in the fields of computational mechanics, fracture mechanics, and numerical modeling of advanced engineering materials.
In his ongoing research, Xuan is dedicated to establishing a unified numerical framework capable of addressing both brittle and ductile fracture behavior in crystalline materials. Through his studies, he aims to contribute valuable insights into the behavior of these materials and advance the field of engineering mechanics.
