Nonlinear Dynamics of Turbulent and Stokes Flows

Dr. Jae Sung Park is a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Park received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2006 at Hanyang University, Seoul, Republic of Korea. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2008 and 2012, respectively. His research interests encompass a wide range of fluid mechanics, covering from low Reynolds number flows (Stokes flow) to high Reynolds number flows (turbulent flow). He studies various problems numerically using advanced computational algorithms.
