Research

Park research group has been involved with a variety of research activities, including interdisciplinary collaborative efforts across multiple departments as well as industry. We are currently working on multiple projects that involve multiscale and multiphysics engineering systems. The research projects are divided into the following three flow regimes:

  1. Low Reynolds number regime to study biofluids and electrokinetics;
  2. Transitional regime to study the laminar-to-turbulent transition and heat exchanger design;
  3. High Reynolds number regime to study turbulent flows for drag reduction.
  4. Complex fluids, including rheology and active nematics.

The projects have been supported by the National Science Foundation (OIA-1832976; CBET-1936065), the Department of Energy (DE-SC0022280), the University of Nebraska Collaboration Initiative, Nebraska EPSCoR, and NASA Nebraska Space Grant.
