Fluid-Structure Interaction; Bio-Fluid Mechanics; Nonlinear Dynamics/Complex Systems; Dr. Jung is interested in problems of biofluid mechanics related to nonlinear interactions between soft bodies and their surrounding fluid, such as the behavior of a living organism like Paramecium. Other examples of his research include the dynamics of fluid interfaces i.e. the impact of solid/flexible objects into water surface, how animals drink, and the interactions of flexible bodies such as fish and birds with their surrounding flows.
