Dr. Hirotaka Sakaue

Associate Professor

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.
