Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering,Texas A&M University.
Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering in 1998 from Texas A&M University. On receiving his degree, he worked for the Texas A&M University Nuclear Science Center (NSC) for three years as assistant director. Then, in 2001, he joined the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as a faculty member in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering, where he continued to research on Monte Carlo radiation transport simulations, micro-scale high accuracy dosimetry, voxel-based Monte Carlo dose calculations, intravascular dosimetry, etc. In 2003, he came back to Korea, his home country, and joined the Department of Nuclear Engineering at Hanyang University, which department is highly specialized in radiation technologies in Korea. He is now working with his student on (1) Monte Carlo particle transport and detector simulation, (2) high-precision radiation detection and imaging, and (3) advanced computational human models.
