Dr Kang Ren
Dr Kang Ren profile picture
  • Research Fellow in Wave-Ice Structure Interaction
  • Dept of Mechanical Engineering
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

Dr. Kang Ren has been working as a research fellow in the Department of Mechanical Engineering since April 2020 after obtaining his PhD degree from UCL with the prestigious and highly competitive Dean’s Scholarship, in February 2020. Before that, he did his MSc at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, through the support of a joint LRF Centre led by UCL. His current research focuses on fluid-elasticity interaction and its applications in marine engineering, such as the interaction between ocean waves, sea ice and marine structures for the safe navigation of ships on icy waters, and its applications of sloshing dynamics such as in construction industry and marine engineering. His work has been published in several world-renowned international refereed journals including Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Physics of Fluids, Journal of Fluids and Structures, and Journal of Sound and Vibration. He has received Isaac Newton Institute (INI) funding to support his participation in the programme of SIP: Mathematics of Sea Ice Phenomena in 2017 during his PhD study, and recently became one of the five winners of the LRF NEST funding. In addition, he serves as journal reviewer for several international journals such as Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Physics of Fluids, Journal of Fluids and Structures, Journal of Engineering Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Computation, and Applied Ocean Research.
