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.
VStudents from the department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics along with Dr. Nicole Abaid are conducting a Senior Design Project titled "Controlling Crowds Through Human-Robot Interactions." The goal of this project is to study how we can use a human-robot interaction to influence the movement of a group of people. To test our study, we will be performing an interactive experiment using a mobile robot and human participants in The Cube Lab at Moss Arts Center.
We are looking for student volunteers! Students will have an opportunity to participate in university research, and gain exposure to robotics, dynamics, and motion capture analysis in a state of the art lab.
