My name is Yu Cao, a PhD candidate in Fluid Structure Interactions research group at University of Southampton.

I am a researcher on hybrid renewable energy for moving systems, also, an enthusiast on maritime robots.

I wish my work could contribute to a greener, smarter and better future for the ocean.
