Prof. Ming-Jyh Chern was born in Taipei. Currently, he serves as a Professor of mechanical engineering at National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taipei, Taiwan, and is in charge of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Laboratory. Prior to this, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica, Taipei. Ming-Jyh received his First degree and M.S. degrees from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan. Subsequently, he received his Doctoral degree (D.Phil.) from University of Oxford in 1999. He was financially supported by Ministry of Education (Taiwan), British Government, and St Hugh's College during his study in Oxford. Ming-Jyh has been engaged in research on computational fluid dynamics since his doctoral study at Oxford. He was interested in simulations of free surface fluid flows and interaction of fluids and structures during his study in Oxford. After being appointed as an assistant professor at National Taiwan University of Science and Technology in 2000, Ming-Jyh extended his research to several areas including performance test of ball valve, industrial ventilation, biomedical fluid dynamics, PCR reactor, and DSMC method. Some of the results have been published in SCI journals such as Journal of Biomechanics, Journal of Fluids Engineering, International Journal of Numerical Methods for Heat and Fluids Flow, and so on.
