Heavy quarks are produced through initial hard scatterings in heavy-ion collisions, and are affected by the hot and dense medium throughout its evolution when propagating in the medium. Several models have predicted that fluctuations in the initial conditions, together with frequent interactions with the QGP medium could lead to a finite triangular flow $v_3$ for the $D^0$ meson.
We present the first measurement of the $D^0$ triangular flow using data taken with the STAR Heavy Flavor Tracker in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=200$ GeV. The $D^0$ $v_3$ will be compared to light hadron measurements as well as theoretical calculations. Physics implications on the charm-medium interactions as well as the QGP medium properties will be discussed.
