Multi-scale flow simulations

Xiaojue Zhu (朱晓珏)

Greetings! I am a Postdoc Researcher at the Physics of Fluids group and the Max-Planck Center for Complex Fluid Dynamics, University of Twente under the supervision of Prof. Detlef Lohse and Prof. Roberto Verzicco. Recently I got my PhD degree in February 2018 from the same group. My research is focused on numerical simulation of Rayleigh-Bénard (RB) and Taylor-Couette (TC) turbulence at very high Reynolds number, particle laden flows, nanobubbles and nanodroplets, and scientific computing.

Previously I was a research assistant at the Institute of Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing where I got my M.Sc degree under the supervision of Prof. Guowei He and Prof. Xing Zhang. My master thesis research included developing Immersed Boundary (IB) method for biological systems and simulating the Fluid Structure Interactions (FSI) with respect to fish swimming and bird flying.
