Fluid-Dynamics Expert to Join Mechanical Engineering Department
Upon completing a postdoctoral research fellowship at Harvard, Dr. Wonjae Choi will join the UT Dallas Mechanical Engineering Department this fall, bringing small-scale fluid dynamics expertise that has potential applications in oil drilling, antifogging surfaces and the understanding of circulatory diseases.

“Wonjae Choi’s addition to the team will strengthen our ability to develop research and educational initiatives in bio-inspired engineering and microfluidics,” said Dr. Mario Rotea, head of mechanical engineering. “He belongs to an emerging generation of mechanical engineers who are helping create the micro- and nano-devices necessary for a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable world.”
