Chemical and Biomedical Engineering


Joontaek Park is an associate teaching professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering. He was an assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology. His research interest is theoretical and numerical modeling of complex fluids, which include modeling of shape-based particle separation using field flow fractionation, modeling of entangled polymers and computational fluid dynamics simulations of non-Newtonian fluids, such as cement flows, polymer melt extrusion in 3D printing, cleaning debris on complex parts from additive manufacturing using non-Newtonian fluids (funded by Honeywell), and microbubble streaming of a weakly viscoelastic polymer solution (funded by NSF).
