Leo Sun

Postdoctoral Researcher

Biography

Dr. Sun received his BEng from Sichuan University and PhD from Wuhan University. Now he is working at the University of Toronto as a postdoctoral fellow. He aims at developing a robust thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) coupling model based on the combined finite-discrete element method (FDEM).
