Computational Plasma & Reactive Flow Lab — For Prospective Masters and PhD Students  
NRF Grant (2010 — 2013)
We won a 3-year grant from NRF (National Research Foundation of Korea) to do computational studies of weakly-ionized airflow around aircraft. Specifically, the grant will be used for:
(i)  Further developing the numerical methods to simulate weakly-ionized airflow
(ii)  Performing numerical simulations of the MHD generator located within supersonic aircraft and
(iii)  Performing numerical simulations assessing the impact of plasmas on the separation regions within supersonic boundary layers
We are looking for graduate students who would be interested in studying these topics either at the Master's or PhD level. Specifically, we are looking for students who have aptitudes at computer programming and at understanding fluid flow physics. Being reliable, precise, and a bit “perfectionist” are also desirable qualities.
Graduate Scholarships for International Students
International students can apply for a graduate scholarship by the Korean government. There are several types of scholarships available [l] including the following:
1.  Korean Government Scholarship Program for Graduate Students [l]; This scholarship gives 900,000 won per month of financial support and fully-covered tuition fees for a duration of either 2 years for the Masters course or of 3 years for the Ph.D. course.
2.  Self-financed Students Support Program [l]; this scholarship gives 500,000 won per month for a duration of, at most, 1 year.
NRF Grant (2018 — 2021)
We have won a 3-year grant from the Korea National Research Foundation (NRF) to do numerical simulations of boundary layer transition induced by nanosecond plasma actuators. You can see some preliminary results here:
We are looking for
(a)  3rd or 4th year undergraduate students who would like to work on this topic during the vacation (1 million won per month salary).
(b)  Masters and PhD students (1+ million won per month salary).
