The Lipo Wang Research Group at UM-SJTU Joint Institute


The turbulence, combustion and CFD (computational fluid dynamics) group, led by Prof. Lipo Wang, focuses on fluid turbulence-related phenomena, such as fundamental turbulence, turbulent combustion and numerical simulations. We are interested in attacking fundamentals and applications with engineering importance as well. Current research activities include the topological structures of turbulence flows, interaction between the flame surface and turbulent flows, drag reduction design etc.

Open Positions

We are seeking highly motivated graduate students and postdoctoral scholars to join the group. People with backgrounds in fluid dynamics, turbulence and CFD are strongly encouraged. Please send your CV and a statement of your research interests to Professor Wang at
