Professor Choi is interested in turbulence, flow control, CFD, and bio-mimetic engineering.

He studies turbulence physics using both the numerical simulation (DNS and LES) and experiment.

He also develops new ideas of flow control strategies, based on physical observation, mathematical theory

and bio-mimetic approach. Development of fast and accurate numerical schemes for turbulent flow

inside/outside complex geometries is also one of main subjects of his research.
