ZJ Wang

Z.J. Wang, Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Director of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Center at the Iowa State University (ISU), received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Glasgow in 1990. Then he conducted post-doctoral research in Glasgow and Oxford before joining CFD Research Corporation in Huntsville, Alabama in 1991 as a Research Engineer, and later becoming a Technical Fellow. In 2000, he joined the faculty of Michigan State University as an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering. In 2005 he returned to Aerospace Engineering at ISU. He has been active in CFD research since early 1990es with over 100 journal and conference publications. His research areas include adaptive high-order methods for the Navier-Stokes equations, algorithm and flow solver development for structured and unstructured, overset and adaptive Cartesian grids, computational aeroacoustics and electromagnetics, parallel computing, geometry modeling and grid generation. He was an invited lecturer of the von Karman Institute Lecture Series on High-Order CFD Methods in 2005 and 2008. He is an Associate Fellow of AIAA, an Associate Editor of the AIAA Journal, a member of AIAA’s Fluid Dynamics Technical Committee, and chairs the CFD Algorithm Development Discussion Group. In July 2008, he was awarded the degree of Doctor of Science in Engineering by the University of Glasgow.
