Short Description

Dr. Tang is a scholar specialized in various areas of fluid mechanics, especially in active flow control and fluid-structure interaction, with both fundamental investigations and real-world applications. He received his PhD degree in Aeronautical Engineering from University of Manchester in 2007. After graduation, he worked as Postdoctoral Research Fellow at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and then worked as Assistant Professor at Nanyang Technological University. He joined PolyU in 2014 as Assistant Professor, and was then promoted to Associate Professor in 2017. Dr. Tang has published 5 book chapters and 80+ refereed papers including 50+ papers in top-tier journals. He is/has been member of scientific or organizing committees for various international conferences/symposiums. He is now serving as an Executing Committee Member of Hong Kong Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (HKSTAM) (2016-present).

Various PhD/RA openings are available. If interested, please contact Dr Tang for more information.
