Brief Description of Research:
Hyun-Joong Chung is an Assistant Professor of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Alberta since 2013. He received B.S. from KAIST and Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. After graduation, he worked for 3 years as a senior engineer at Samsung Display in Korea, where he contributed in developing prototype large-area OLED TVs, followed by a postdoctoral training on stretchable electronics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His current research interests are on soft materials – specifically on hydrogels and elastomeric polymers and composites – and their applications in energy devices and wearable bioelectronics. He is the recipient of Hanwha Non-Tenured Faculty Award in 2015 for his contributions in polymer nanocomposites.
