This is Pan-Lab, a unique interdisciplinary and collaborative "kitchen" for fluid physics. Our studies span from fundamental fluid physics (jets, bubbles, and droplets), micro/bio-fluids and bio-mechanics, to advanced fluid flow diagnostics. We are driven by curiosity and serve both academia and industrial sectors with creative ideas, unique physical insights, and rigorous math.

Working with mathematicians, scientists and engineers from different fields, our multi-disciplinary fluid dynamics studies have been published in top journals such as PNASNature PlantsJ. Fluid MechPhys. Rev. FluidsPhys. Fluids, and Soft Matter, etc.

Our works have been featured on journal covers (Nature PlantsSoft Matter), editor’s picks, in 40+ leading media outlets (e.g., ScienceNatureThe Washington PostEurekAlert!, etc.). Beyond science and technologies, we look for broader social impact.
