|Profile||My work focuses on developing the light-weight numerical simulation tools that can be applied to wide industry where the model-based development is needed. Especially, my specialty is fluid flows associated with the liquid/gas interface, for instance, liquid film flows, film coatings, breakup of droplets, material processing with melting and solidification. The fundamental approach in my research is formulating the efficient models of heat and mass transfer with applying an appropriate approximation.
Recently, our research group has working on application of a rapidly growing machine learning framework to the research field of fluid dynamics. By applying a physics-informed neural networks to the partial difference equation for the liquid film flows, the computational time to obtain the solution can be largely reduced.
As well as taking a role in teaching at TCU, I am an editorial member of Int. J. Microgravity Sci. Appl.
