Biography
Dr Tang received his BEng degree in Engineering Mechanics and MEng degree in Fluid Mechanics from Tsinghua University in 2000 and 2002, respectively. He did his PhD research in Aeronautical Engineering from 2003 to 2007 at University of Manchester, which involves computational and analytical fluid mechanics, particularly in the area of flow separation control. From 2007 to 2010, he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His work was focused on the development and application of Energy Finite Element Analysis (EFEA) for high frequency vibration of composite structures. He joined the Aerospace Division of NTU’s School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in April 2010.
