The University of Manchester
Dr Zhong is a Reader and the head of the aerospace research theme at School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, Manchester University. She received her PhD from Cambridge University in 1994. Prior to joining Manchester as a lecturer in 1997, she has worked as a research associate at Oxford University for three years. Dr Zhong’s research is primarily concerned with shear flows with emphasis on boundary layer laminar-to-turbulent transition, flow control and fluid mixing. Through carefully designed experiments and innovative use of advanced flow measurement techniques, her research aims at understanding some of the fundamental fluid physics, which underpins the development of more efficient fluid and transportation systems.
