About Jae Sung Park
Dr. Park joined the faculty of the Department of Mechanical and Material Engineering at UNL in 2017. Prior to coming to UNL, he worked as a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research interests encompass a wide range of fluid mechanics, from low Reynolds number flows to high Reynolds number flows, focusing on complex fluids, colloidal suspensions, electrokinetics, and turbulent flow. Most of his research centers around techniques for energy-saving engineering and nanotechnology. He develops advanced computational algorithms to investigate various problems in fluid mechanics. His publications include articles in such academic journals as Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Physical Review Letters, Physical Review Fluids, Physical Review E, Soft Matter, Journal of Rheology, and others.
