Flow Measurement and Control using Functional Molecules – Dr. Hirotaka Sakaue
August 19, 2016 @ 9:30 am
Dr. Hirotaka Sakaue
Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering
University of Notre Dame
This presentation introduces an interdisciplinary study on experimental fluid dynamics and chemistry.
Two columns of research topics are presented: luminescent imaging and chemical flow control. By the
cross linkage of the luminescent imaging and chemical flow control, Dr. Sakaue’s interdisciplinary
studies have covered a broad spectrum of research initiatives including fluid dynamics, flow control,
green energy/environmental engineering, and biomedical engineering. With these four signature fields,
Dr. Sakaue has more concentrated on fluid dynamics and flow control. In this presentation, basics of
luminescent imaging and chemical flow control as well as some applications are included.
Dr. Hirotaka Sakaue is an associate professor at Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering,
University of Notre Dame. He had spent over ten years at Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA)
as a researcher before joining Notre Dame. He received his BS in Biomolecular Engineering from Tokyo
Institute of Technology, Japan, in 1996, and MS and PhD in Aeronautics and Astronautics, Purdue
University in 1999 and 2003, respectively.
