Welcome to Physicochemical Hydrodynamics Lab!
Our research interest lies in understanding of physicochemical hydrodynamic behaviors in Nature. Physicochemical hydrodynamics describes hydrodynamic movements of physical/chemical/electrical/biological components. Applications that can benefit from an improved understanding in this field are desalination, electrochemical systems, and particle manipulations.
Briefly, our current research topics include:
1. fluid dynamics of electro-hydrodynamic instability,
2. ion transport phenomena in electro-membrane desalination,
3. physicochemical hydrodynamics for bio-agent pretreatment.
We are looking for Postdoc and graduate students who are interested in Desalination & Fluid dynamics!
