Major Research Interests
Biofluid dynamics includes the analysis, control, and manipulation of fluid flow inside living mammals, and acts as a bridge between physics and medicine. At Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen, I focus on underlying mechanics of biofluidics and corresponding numerical methods. My major research interests include:

  • Multiphysics (blood flow + electromechanics) in the human heart;
  • Cilia driven flow in the mammalian brain, airway and embryo;
  • Turbulent airflow and particle delivery in human upper airway;
  • Numerical methods for fluid dynamics and heat transfer;
  • Numerical technologies for fluid-structure interaction.
