My name is Yue Sun (孙悦). I am a first-year Ph.D. student in Applied Mathematics at Harvard University,
advised by Professor Chris Rycroft. I received my Master of Engineering degree in Computational Science and
Engineering from Harvard University in 2020, and defended my master’s thesis in fluid–structure interaction. I
got my Bachelor of Science degree from New York University Shanghai in 2018, with one major in Mathematics
and two minors in Interactive Media Arts and Urban Design & Architectural Studies.
I interned at Activision / Raven Software in summer 2019 and summer 2020. During both internships, I worked
on the engine physics code improvement and the animation tools development as a technical animation intern. I
received two game credits: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (2020).
