My paper on urban scaling laws is currently under review at Nature Human Behavior, and my project on the polarization of political parties is in preparation for publication. Hopefully, they will appear here soon.
Prior to joining Northwestern as a PhD student, I built mathematical models applied to heat transfer and microwave chemistry as an undergraduate. The following are some of this work published in peer-reviewed journals.
B.S. Tilley, V.C. Yang, J.C. Baiense, S. Evans (2017) ‘Frequency-dependent thermal resistance of vertical U-tube geothermal heat exchangers’, Journal of Engineering Mathematics, 1-20.
E.M. Moon, C. Yang, and V.V. Yakovlev (2015) ‘Microwave-induced temperature felds in cylindrical samples of graphite powder – experimental and modeling studies’, International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, vol. 87, No 8, pp. 359-368.
C. Yang and V.V. Yakovlev (2013) ‘An efficient empirical model for microwave-induced average temperature of liquid cylindrical reactants’, Journal of Microwave Power and Electromagnetic Energy, 47 (3), pp. 177-185.
As an undergraduate student, I also conducted experimental social psychology research, studying the effect of foreign accents on hiring decisions. My result shows a double standard on how men and women are perceived for having a foreign accent. This work did not end up published in a journal, but I think it’s fun.
