Welcome to the Bio-inspired Fluid Mechanics Lab at Shanghai Jiao Tong University! We are a lively group of researchers, interested in all kinds of biological phenomenon in the microscopic world, and centered on the theme of experimental fluid mechanics, the topics covered include:

  • Bacteria swimming – both individual swimming and collective motion
3D real time tracking
  • Active matter system – the dynamics of biological active matter
Fluid flow
  • Artificial swimmer design – novel micro/nano swimmers based on biological materials
  • Microfluidics – design of new microfluidic channels and devices

Our lab is located at Long Bin Building, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China.


We are looking for students and postdocs who are interested in joining our group. Feel free to contact Zijie Qu directly at zijie.qu@sjtu.edu.cn.
