Dr. Yu Feng (冯宇) is an Associated Professor in the School of Chemical Engineering at Oklahoma State University, and a center investigator in the Oklahoma Center for Respiratory and Infectious Diseases (OCRID). Yu Feng was a Research Assistant Professor and Lab Manager of the Computational Multi-Physics Laboratory (CM-PL) at North Carolina State University. He has also held an affiliation with the DoD Biotechnology HPC Software Applications Institute (BHSAI) as a Research Scientist II. He completed his B.S. in Engineering Mechanics in 2007 from the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. He then joined the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at North Carolina State University and obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 2010 and 2013, respectively. He founded the Computational Biofluidics and Biomechanics Laboratory (CBBL) at Oklahoma State University, focusing on developing and applying advanced CFPD models towards multiple applications associated with pulmonary healthcare. He has over 10 years experience modeling lung aerosol dynamics on ANSYS CFX and Fluent platforms, with 25 publications in top-ranked fluid dynamics and aerosol science journals. The overall goal of his research group is to understand and consider more underlying physics and chemistry and provide non-invasive, cost-effective and accurate numerical tools for multiple biomedical applications, e.g., health risk assessment, pulmonary drug evaluation and improvement, and non-invasive disease diagnosis. We make contributions to the medical world and human life by providing well-posed solutions to patient-specific pulmonary health problems using multi-scale modeling techniques.


Outside of work, Yu Feng enjoys running (20 half marathons and 7 marathons so far), hiking, singing performance, photography, basketball, playing the accordion, and cooking. If you are not able to find him in the office or classroom, he is probably in the middle of an on-street running.
