Mr He Yang (1995.11-present), PhD Candidate at the University of Leeds (UoL), Deputy Chair of Geomodelling and AI Centre (GAIC).

He focuses mainly on the theory and applications of the Plasticity and Geomechanics. In particular, He and his co-workers proposed the Hybrid Eulerian-Lagrangian (HEL) Approach and Variable Transformation Method for non-self-similar cavity expansion problems. 

He serves as the Editor Assistant for Geomechanics and Geoengineering, and peer reviewer for Acta Geotechnica and Geomechanics and Geoengineering. He also published 7 papers on high-quality peer-review journals, including ASCE-JGGE, JMPS, TUST, Can Geo J, Com & Geo.
