Principal Investigator



Research Interest: AI in fluid mechanics

Research Interest: Vortical flow control and sensing

Research Interest: Bio-inspired aerial/aquatic robotics

Research Interest: Smart environmental monitoring

We are always looking for self-motivated undergraduates, graduates (both MSc and Ph.D.), postdocs, and visiting scholars, as well as collaborators and sponsors, to join our research effort on AI in fluid mechanics, bio-inspired robots, and smart environmental monitoring. We encourage applications from women, persons with disabilities, Indigenous peoples, members of visible minorities, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas. Please send Dixia an email, if you are interested!
