Single-nanoparticle upconversion nanolasers for probing biological systems
Miniaturized or nanoparticle-based lasers are emerging as promising candidates for biological sensing and imaging, particularly in in-vivo settings. We aim to harness the engineered single-nanoparticle upconverting nano-lasers to sense, image and control biological functions.

Computational Biomechanical Modelling and simulation of cellular migration in heterogeneous 3D environment
Our goal is to simulate single cell migration of tumor cells in heterogeneous 3D environments. This involves the simulation of continuum-mechanical models for the cytoplasm, the nucleus, the cortex as well as microtubules through methods based on machine learning and solid-fluid structure coupling.

Exploring the interactions between ramping wind events (fronts and thunderstorms) and wind farms
Wind power ramp events often occur when a frontal system or lines of thunderstorms pass over a wind farm. This project will explore the flow physics associated these meteorological phenomena and their interaction wind farms through meso/micro-scale simulations and comparison with wind farm data.
