Associate Professor Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering

Dr. Shi-Di Huang had his undergraduate study at Fudan University, majoring in Physics. After obtaining his Bachelor degree in 2009, he went to the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) to pursue his Ph.D and then worked as a postdoctoral fellow in CUHK after graduating in 2014. Dr. Huang joined the Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering at Southern University of Science and Technology in 2017. His research covers a wide variety of topics, including turbulence, natural convection, density-stratified flow, dynamics of oceanic overturning circulation, bio-fluids, self-organized behaviors and urban pollutant dispersion.
