Microorganisms such as sperm and bacteria can migrate towards the upstream in background flow, and these rheotactic behaviours can be explained by hydrodynamic interactions. In this talk, we focus on squirmer swimming near a wall in a background shear flow, and present theoretical and computational studies on the similarities and differences in the two and three dimensional squirmer dynamics.
