Ziyao Zhang DPhil

COLLEGE: Magdalen College


ZIyao has various experience in numerical fluid mechanics. He has previously investigated electrohydrodynamic instability and plumes behaviors in viscoelastic fluids within symmetric and axisymmetric electrode configurations, which are highly coupled and complicated problems, before he came to Oxford. He found that the elastic will strongly affect the bifurcation process of EHD, and the rising processes of viscoelastic EHD plumes will get promoted. At Oxford, Ziyao is investigating the detailed dynamics of droplet impact and aero breakup problems using state-of-art high-resolution numerical simulations.
