The position is in conducting ONR (Office of Naval Research) funded research to develop a novel wall mounted MEMS stress sensor array and apply them to perform simultaneous measurements of pressure/shear distribution measurements and near wall fluid flow in an adverse pressure gradient turbulent boundary layer. Primary objective is to develop a new distributed micro-sensor technology that is capable of measuring pressure and shear stress distributions at high response frequency in turbulent flow. The research will focus on experimentally studies hydrodynamic interactions of soft sensor materials and turbulent flows, as well as developing the optical nano-strain measurement techniques (e.g., digital holographic interferometry, digital holographic microscopy) that enable nanoscale (e.g.
