Assistant Professor Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering
Dr. Huanshu Tan (谭唤书) studied for his bachelor degree (2011) at the Chongqing Jiaotong University and went on to study for a master degree (2014) at the Shanghai Institute of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, Shanghai University. Huanshu obtained his Ph.D. degree in August 2018 from the Physics of Fluids Group at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. From 2018 to 2020, he worked as a postdoc researcher in the Squires' Group of the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara, in the USA. In December 2020, he joined the Southern University of Science and Technology as an assistant professor. Dr. Tan works in the SUSTech Center for Complex Flows and Soft Matter Research and the Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering.
His research includes:
(1) Reveal and explain the evaporation-triggered phase separation phenomenon in evaporating multicomponent droplets. The relevant research includes evaporating ouzo droplets, the impact of the contact surface wettability on the droplet evaporation, phase separation-induced self-lubrication effect of the evaporating droplets, application of the self-lubrication effect on supraparticles fabrication. (Ph.D.)
(2) Propose a new strategy for delivering colloids to specific positions within porous media. The relevant research includes stabilizing emulsion droplets, generation and transportation of colloidal droplets, and micro-fabrication techniques. (Postdoc)
At SUSTech, his lab develops for studying Physico-chemical hydrodynamics, currently focusing on the mass-transfer-induced interfacial flow and phase separation phenomena in complex fluid systems. Physico-chemical hydrodynamics is essential to widespread technology, from chemical- and bio-engineering, nanotechnology, advanced material science to environmental engineering.
