**My Research **

**My research program is in the area of
applied computational mathematics with applications to science and engineering. I am interested
in numerical methods for and computer simulations of fundamental mechanical
and/or biological processes which involve incompressible viscous fluids (Newtonian or non-Newtonian) and
elastic deformable solids/boundaries. There are two major components of my research
program: development of numerical methods for
fluid-flexible-structure-interaction problems including extension/improvement of
the immersed boundary (IB) framework, and applications of the newly developped methods to problems
in life science and engineering.**

**Currently I am working on
1)Multiscale modeling and simulation of interstitial fluid flow over osteocyte in loaded bone;
2)Modeling and simulation of blood flow with application to hemodialysis.
