Yongqi Wang is currently a Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany. He received the B.S. degree in applied physics from the Tsinghua University, Peking, China, in 1984, the M.S. degree in physical engineering from the Research Center of Physical Engineering, Tianjin, China, in 1987, the Ph.D. degree in applied mechanics from the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany, in 1995, and the University Lecturing Qualification (Venia Legendi) from the TU Darmstadt in 2002. From 1987 to 1992, he was a Designing Engineer at the Research Center of Physical Engineering, Tianjin. From 2001 to 2006, Wang was an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanics at the TU Darmstadt, Germany. In 2006, he was a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria. Since 2006, he is the Deputy in the Chair of Fluid Dynamics, Department of Mechanical Engineering, at the TU Darmstadt, Germany. His main research fields include (i) general continuum mechanics, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamic, (ii) computational fluid dynamics, (iii) dynamics of granular flows, avalanches, and debris flows, (iv) multiphase flow with phase interfaces and contact lines, (v) physical limnology and oceanography, and (vi) rheology/fluid mechanics of non-Newtonian fluids, fluid dynamics of peristaltic flows, and so forth.
