Visiting associate professor at the institute of fluid science (IFS). Conducted basic and translational research on the hemodynamics and mechanobiology of intracranial circulation[1–3]. Co-designed and analyzed PIV experiment series for cerebral aneurysm hemodynamics, ultrasound velocimetery and CFD simulations of cerebral aneurysm, carotid stenosis and Moyamoya disease.
