Google Scholar Profile

Sungyon Lee completed her Ph.D. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and B.S. in Mechanical Engineering at University of California, Berkeley. After a post-doc at Ecole Polytechnique and adjunct faculty position in UCLA Applied Math, she was an assistant professor in Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University from 2013-2017. Her fluid mechanics research group specializes in reducing complex physical phenomena into tractable problems that can be visualized with table-top experiments and solved with mathematical modeling. The physical systems of interest range from drops and bubbles, particle-laden flows, to two-phase flows through porous media and are strongly motivated by applications in the area of energy and environment.
