Short Description

Dr Wang is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HK PolyU).  He obtained his PhD degree in 2016 from the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. After that, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow sequentially in NTU, HK PolyU and the M2P2 Lab, CNRS, France. He received his bachelor and master degrees from the School of Mechatronics Engineering, Harbin Institute of Technology, China.

Dr Wang’s research interests focus on a variety of topics involving Newtonian/Non-Newtonian fluid flow, multi-phase and multi-component flow, low-Reynolds number flow and etc. He is particularly interested in studying bio-inspired and engineering-based fluid-structure interaction problems through computational modelling. His work has been published in top-tier journals in fluid mechanics, such as Physical Review Fluids, Physics of Fluids and Journal of Fluids and Structures. He is a member of the American Physical Society, and also serves as a reviewer for several high-quality journals.
