ChE graduate student Jaeyub Chung wins 2019 Doh Wonsuk Memorial Award
Jaeyub Chung, a fifth year doctoral student in the Davidson School of Chemical Engineering, was recently awarded the 2019 Doh Wonsuk Memorial Award by the Korea Institute of Chemical Engineers (KIChE) for his stellar contributions to the field of chemical engineering.
The US Chapter of the Korean Institute of Chemical Engineers annually selects up to two Korean students studying chemical engineering in doctoral programs who excel in their field. Recipients are awarded a certificate and a $1,000 cash prize. Chung received the award at the Korean- American Chemical Engineering Forum during the 2019 American Institute of Chemical Engineers Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL in November.
Under the guidance of his thesis advisors, Dr. Bryan Boudouris, the Robert and Sally Weist Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering, and Dr. Elias Franses, Professor of Chemical Engineering, Chung has published seven papers. His primary research focus is on interfacial tension and phase behavior of oil/aqueous systems for enhanced oil recovery.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by the Doh Wonsuk Memorial Award,” said Chung, “I am sincerely grateful for all the advice along the way from my colleagues and advisors. This award will inspire me to keep pursuing a career in academic research as I plan to apply for postdoc positions.”
