Postdoc Position in i4-FSI Lab, School of Engineering, Westlake University

Category: Postdoctoral Fellow

Department: SE

Location: Hangzhou, CN

Employment Type: Full-time


Introduction of the Lab/ Research Field

Ati4-FSI Lab (Intelligent, Informational, Integrative, Interdisciplinary Fluid-Structure Interaction Laboratory), we focus on the fundamental understanding of fluid-structure interaction phenomena, bio-inspired amphibious robots design as well as AI application in vortical flow control and sensing. Based on physics-informed (and -informative) machine learning, we combine domain expertise (fluid mechanics, robotics, and control) and proper machine learning tools to address the inherent spatial and temporal non-linearity and multiscality of fluid-related problems at a greater scale and a broader scope.

We envision a research paradigm shift in fluid mechanics to a physics-informed (and -informative) probabilistic learning framework, which leads to disruptive technology transformation in the aerospace and marine industry to a more efficient, safe, and eco-friendly future. Some of the current research topics include

1) aero/hydrodynamics of fish, birds, insects, and mammals locomotion;

2) development of novel morphing devices for aero/hydro propulsion;

3) advancement of machine learning and bio-inspired algorithm for vortical flow control and sensing.
