I am Hungtang Ko, Ph.D. student in Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech in Dr David Hu‘s lab. I am very excited to have you here! On this website, you can find my current and past research projects as well as some other things I’ve done just for fun. I hope you will find it interesting!
My major research interest is in BioPhysics. I strive to bridge the beautiful mathematical theories with fascinating animal behaviors. I’d love to invite you to appreciate the beauty and genius of natural design through my projects.
My current projects mainly focus on the amazing insect fire ants: Fire Ant Raft Deformation under Flow, Fire Ant Raft Formation & Stability, Dripping Faucet of Fire Ants, Metabolic Scaling of Fire Ants and Facilitating Aggregation In Fire Ants.
My side project Physics of Wok Tossing was recently published as the cover of the interdisciplinary journal Royal Society Interface! It has attracted attention from international media such as CNN, ABC Radio Tasmania, German National Radio and a lot more! See the Media Coverages page for the list!
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or interests in my research. It is my Passion to spread the knowledge and love to every one of you!
