Our research group aims at providing fundamental and applied insights on important problems in fluid mechanics with advanced experimental approaches. Our research mainly focuses on the following areas:
- Wind & hydrokinetic energy technologies
- Fluid structure interactions in complex flows
- Control of aerodynamic & underwater structures
- Advanced technique for turbulence measurement
We have comprehensive research on these topics with state-of-the-art experimental techniques including 2D, stereo and time-resolved particle image velocimetry (PIV), particle tracking velocimetry (PTV), 3D hotwire, force balance, Acoustic Doppler Velocimetry (ADV), among others.
Our group is looking for 1-2 highly motivated Ph.D. students. Students with bachelor’s or master’s degrees in mechanical engineering or other closely related fields are encouraged to apply. Candidates with backgrounds in experimental/theoretical fluid mechanics are especially welcome. To apply, please send CV, unofficial transcript and other supporting materials to Dr. Jin to discuss potential opportunities.
