Oklahoma State UniversityUnited States of America

Yu Feng (冯宇) joined the School of Chemical Engineering at Oklahoma State University as an Assistant Professor in August 2016. He also joined the Oklahoma Center for Respiratory and Infectious Diseases (OCRID) as an investigator. Yu Feng was a Research Assistant Professor and Lab Manager of the Computational Multi-Physics Laboratory (CM-PL) at North Carolina State University. He has also held an affiliation with DoD Biotechnology HPC Software Applications Institute (BHSAI) as a Research Scientist II. He completed his B.S. in Engineering Mechanics in 2007 from the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. He then joined the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at North Carolina State University, and obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 2010 and 2013 respectively. His current research interests include advanced computational fluid-particle dynamics (CF-PD) modeling for the transport and deposition of inhalable drugs and toxicants in human respiratory systems, with applications of medical device improvements for effective and targeted drug deliveries, novel lung therapeutics, non-invasive disease diagnostic methodologies, and exposure health risk evaluations. The overall goal the research is to understand and consider more underlying physics and chemistry, in order to provide non-invasive, cost-effective, and accurate numerical tools with more simulating capabilities, complementing in vitro and in vivo studies for interdisciplinary engineering practice and academic research. Outside of work, Yu Feng enjoys running (16 half marathons and 3 marathons so far), hiking, singing performance, photography, basketball, playing accordion, and cooking. If you are not able to find him in the office or classroom, he is probably in the middle of an on-street running.
