[Faculty][HY's Excellence] Enriching Human Life through Securing Original Technologies that Fuse Human-Friendly NT, IT, and BT

Professor Tae Whan Kim is a distinguished scholar of next generation intelligent semiconductor research. For more than 30 years, he has focused on the properties of semiconductor nano quantum structures, materials, and devices. He became a member of the Korean Academy of Science and Technology in 2006 and became an HYU Distinguished Professor in 2007. He has more than 700 papers published in the SCI journals and more than 168 international and Korean patents. In particular, there were more than 75 technology transfers to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., LG Display Co. Ltd., and an IP investment company called Intellectual Discovery, all leading companies in memory and display industry. Professor Kim, who describes himself as a ‘researcher who observes and applies natural phenomenon,’ is committed to research with the hope that his passion as a scholar will help enrich our lives. Professor Kim is in charge of the Nano Quantum Electronics Research Lab at Hanyang University. The research lab studies memory devices, organic light-emitting devices, energy harvesting devices, and nano quantum structure device simulation. They also perform national and industry-university tasks including the Korean Research Foundation’ leap task. Professor Kim is conducting next-generation intelligent semiconductor research in collaboration with research teams to realize hardware artificial intelligence utilizing memristive devices including a memristor and a synaptic device. Professor Kim states, “Just as a human gets nourished and produces energy, learns, judges, and acts on their own, I would like to make a semiconductor device into a network that can continue to replenish its energy and learn by itself.” Professor Kim’s research has been cited by many fellow researchers. His studies on memristive devices for implementing next-generation hardware artificial intelligence, improving performance of organic light-emitting devices, and energy harvesting have become a guide for contemporary researchers and juniors. “I would like to make a better hardware device by imitating the way the human brain works, which is the most biologically advanced mechanism,” said Professor Kim. He is working on another design based on his prior researches. He plans to secure the original technologies for 1) bio-mimetic memristor and synaptic devices for the next-generation intelligent semiconductors, 2) the neuro-network operation principle based on research on a brain-mimetic device with the synaptic characteristics of the memristive devices, and 3) development and improvement to commercialize flexible and wearable light-emitting devices and energy harvesting devices. Professor Kim, with the help of his co-researchers, wishes to solve the problems of intelligent semiconductor devices, including the memristor to realize hardware artificial intelligence, synaptic devices, and flexible and wearable energy harvest devices combined with a learning sensor. “The goal is to secure original technologies related to the realization of bio-mimetic neuromorphic intelligent semiconductor devices, energy harvest devices, and the self-developing bio-mimetic convergence system, which are necessary for the realization of the brain nerve network,” states Professor Kim. He humbly wishes to share his knowledge with modesty and to devote his research in pursuit of enriching our lives, which is the driving force of his research. As his brain neuro-network research intensifies, we wish he can realize his bio-mimetic technology that can cure brain diseases, an important topic for the aging society. 2007~Present HYU Distinguished Professor 2006~Present Member of the Korean Academy of Science and Technology 2004~2016 Head Professor of Electronic Engineering at Hanyang University Graduate School of Engineering 2003~Present Professor of Department of Electronic Engineering at Hanyang University College of Engineering 1989~2003 Professor of Department of Electrical and Biological Physics at Kwangwoon University 1982~1988 Doctor of Science in Physics at State University of New York at Buffalo 1980~1981 Master of Science in Physics at Seoul National University 1975~1979 Bachelor of Science in Physics at Kyungpook National University - Research on the development and source technology of the memristive device - Research on production and performance enhancement of memory device - Memristors and artificial synaptic device for the hardware AI - Research on the development and the source technology of the high-efficiency organic light-emitting device - Research on flexible/wearable electronic and optoelectronic devices “Reduced graphene-oxide acting as electron-trapping sites in the friction layer for giant triboelectric enhancement”, Nano Energy, 2017 Find more “Mimicking classical conditioning based on a single flexible memristor”, Advanced Materials, 2017 Find more “Enhanced triboelectric nanogenerators based on MoS2 monolayer nanocomposites acting as electron-acceptor layers”, ACS Nano, 2017 Find more “Flexible three-dimensional artificial synapse networks with correlated learning and trainable memory capability”, Nature Communications, 2017 Find more “Ultrasoft and cuttable paper-based triboelectric nanogenerators for mechanical energy harvesting”, Nano Energy Volume, 2018 Find more “Ultrahigh-luminosity white-light-emitting devices based on edge functionalized graphene quantum dots”, Nano Energy, 2018 Find more “Capsule triboelectric nanogenerators: Toward optional 3D integration for high output and efficiently energy harvesting from broadband-amplitude vibration”, ACS Nano, 2018 Find more Industry Research / Samsung Electronics “Analysis on leakage current characteristic of Ⅲ-Ⅴ Compound Semiconductor Device” (2012~2015) “Development of trap model and electrical transport in nitride for improving dispersion and retention characteristics, electrical transport in polycrystalline channels of VNAND memory devices” (2015-2020) Industry Research / SK Hynix “Development of Dark Current Prediction Model and System for Pixel Structural Change” (2014-2016) “Theoretical Analysis on HC40 Local Layout Effect and Development of Analytical Model” (2018-2020) Industry Research / LG Display “A Study on the Side Current Leakage Mechanism for High-resolution OLED Production” (2016-2017) Technology transfer Equity transfer in seven other cases, in addition to “Design of Multiple Bit Charge Capture Flash Memory Devices with Seperate Gates Using Improved Saddle Structure”.

[Faculty][HY's Excellence] A world-renowned authority on the development of next-generation batteries

Yang Kook Sun is a professor of Energy Engineering at Hanyang University, Korea. He received his PhD in Chemical Engineering from Seoul National University in 1992. After that, he joined Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology, where he was the team leader of the lithium polymer battery and his contribution was a cornerstone for the commercialization of the lithium polymer battery of Samsung SDI. He received the “Grand Prize Award” from the Korea Patent Association due to his contribution to lithium ion battery commercialization in 1999. After joining Hanyang University in 2000, he became an active member of The Korean Academy of Science and Technology in 2007, The National Academy of Engineering of Korea in 2016, and became a Distinguished Professor at Hanyang University in 2008. Professor Sun is also very active in the scientific community, giving a large number of invited talks, chairing many sessions, and organizing conferences on energy storage. He contributes a lot to our community by serving as a senior editor for ACS Energy Letters and before then he served as an editor for the journal of Power Sources. For his contributions in his field, he received a myriad number of awards for his accomplishments including Research Awards from the Energy Technology Division and the Battery Division of The Electrochemical Society (ECS) in 2007 and 2011, R&D 100 Award from R&D Magazine in 2012, National Green Technology award from Korea Industrial Technology Association in 2012, Lithium-ion Battery award of Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy from Korea Battery Industry Association in 2014, Innovative Knowledge Award from Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning in 2015, and Engineering Award from Gyeongam Foundation in 2016. In addition, he was selected as a Highly Cited Researcher (HCR) for ranking among the top 1% of researchers in his specific field by Clarivate Analytics 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. He received Technology Awards from the Battery Division of ECS in 2017 and became ECS Fellow in 2019. Professor Sun’s major research interests are design, synthesis and structural analysis of new innovative energy storage and conversion of materials, and their applications in electrochemical devices of lithium-ion, lithium-sulfur, lithium-air, and sodium-ion batteries. One of his pioneering research works in lithium-ion battery field is the establishment of core-shell and concentration-gradient type composite cathode materials based on lithium-nickel-cobalt-manganese oxides. These innovative cathode materials have been licensed in 2008, 2010, and 2014 by three Korean companies and have recently undergone production for use in E-bike batteries by LG Chemical Ltd and in ‘2018 Niro EV’ electric vehicle batteries by Kia Motors Corporation. The concentration-gradient cathode material has received further attention from numerous companies and is expected to be employed for electronic vehicles. We anticipate that this novel approach should lead to the design and development of a wide range of other safe and stable high-capacity intercalation compounds. The concept of concentration-gradient has already been applied to sodium-ion cathode materials resulting in high-capacity and prolonged cycle life compared to conventiaonl sodium-ion cathode materials. Professor Sun has also contributed to the lithium-air battery community by setting the standard test-mode for operation through using cut-off capacity instead of cut-off voltage and employing tetraethylene glycol dimethyl ether (TEGDME) as most commonly used electrolyte in the field. Furthermore, he is fabricating high electrochemical performance pouch-type cells in lithium-sulfur and lithium-air batteries to investigate their practical cell performance and problems in commercial batteries which are shadowed in coin-type cells. Currently, he has expanded his research to lithium-metal-ion batteries for higher energy density batteries. Today, his research has cumulated to more than 600 publications and 491 registered and applied patents in the field of batteries and electrochemistry. He is still very active in his field of research and continues to collaborate with multiple researchers from around the world to make contributions to the field of batteries and electrochemistry. - 2019 Class of Fellows, The Electrochemical Society (U.S.A) - 2019 ~ present ECS Fellow, Electrochemical Society - 2017 The Battery Division Technology Award, The Electrochemical Society (U.S.A.) - 2016 ~ present Member, The National Academy of Engineering of Korea - 2016 ~ present Senior Editor of ACS Energy Letters - 2016 ~ 2019 Highly Cited Researcher(Material Science), Clarivate Analytics - 2012 ~ 2016 Editor of Journal of Power Sources - 2012 R&D 100 Award, R&D Magazine (U.S.A.) - 2011 The Battery Division Research Award, The Electrochemical Society (U.S.A.) - 2009 ~ present Distinguished Professor, Department of Energy Engineering, Hanyang University - 2008 ~ 2013 Senior Visiting Scientist, Argonne National Lab.

[Faculty][HY's Excellence] Editor-in-Chief of Routledge IR Theory and Practice in Asia, a Young Erudite Scholar Challenging Mainstream Ideas and Perspectives

Professor Yong-Soo Eun has been making an impact on the topic of diversity in international politics. The topic, which started with his questioning the diversity of theory and cognition, expanded to non-Western international politics, and eventually led him to the position of editor-in-chief of Routledge IR Theory and Practice in Asia. He is sparking notable discourse by working as an editor with famous scholars in the East and the West such as Peter J. Katzenstein (Cornell University), T. V. Paul (McGill University), and Qin Yaqing (China Foreign Affairs University). Professor Eun has been suggesting problems with mainstream ideas and perspectives while delving into international studies in depth. For example, while various theories have appeared and are being discussed in international relations, he was concerned whether a public forum is being formed, whether it is being practiced, and even whether various theories are acceptable beyond social and cultural boundaries and across borders. “On the surface, there are a variety of theories, but the underlying soil that creates theories lacks diversity. I also came to the realization that the process of reproducing knowledge, in terms of practicing and spreading knowledge based on mainstream thoughts, can further undermine diversity,” said Professor Eun. He put such thoughts in his publication Pluralism and Engagement in International Relations (2016). This book drew a lot of interest after being published by Macmillan (UK) and Springer (Germany). Released in e-book format, it has already been downloaded over 820 times. ( He said, “I had some regrets over missed aspects in Pluralism and Engagement in International Relations that bothered me after its publication - namely the diversity of knowledge across geography and culture.” He thought that the ongoing problem of Western-centric international politics must be solved, so he suggested to Routledge a series of “IR Theory and Practice in Asia,” and now he publishes more than one book a year after assessing manuscripts from scholars from around the world. Professor Eun himself has published What Is at Stake in Building “Non-Western” IR Theory? (2018) as a part of the series. He noted, “What is important is that the field of international politics remain open, not dividing the West and the non-West to study non-Western international politics.” About the memorable achievements of his recent research, Professor Eun mentioned an academic debate he had with Professor David Lake of the University of California, San Diego, who has held positions in the American Political Science Association and International Studies Association. Eun’s paper set forth the concept of “reflective solidarity” that Professor Lake had missed in the form of a reply to a publication by Professor Lake in 2016. This paper was published in the PS: Political Science, a journal of global influence. He emphasized that the coalition between Western and non-Western academics is more urgent and important than an expansion in the constituent of human resources that just brings non-Western academics to academia, to overcome the narrowness of the field of international politics and to realize true globalization. Professor Eun is focusing on research about “hybrid coloniality.” Through the theoretical view of postcolonialism, it critically analyzes international political events in the history of Korea’s anti-colonialism process and the responses of the Korean government along with their impacts on Korean diplomatic and security policies in terms of coloniality. In particular, it captures the process and outcomes of Korea’s postcolonialism by converging the concepts of diversity and coloniality. It can ultimately overcome hybrid coloniality while considering alternative measures. If the past ways were approaches taken at material and institutional levels, then he studies ways to achieve independence and diversity of diplomacy on a cognitive level. Professor Eun collaborates with scholars from the East and the West to expand the diversity of international studies, apart from the publication of the Routledge series. In this context, he is partnering on research with Amitav Acharya who, like many other international scholars, holds a position in the International Studies Association. Notably, in recent times where Western-oriented liberal international order is being threatened, he has been studying and working with scholars from Southeast Asia to learn what small and medium-powered Asian countries can do to ensure regional order. He aims to be a researcher who asks critical questions and presents alternatives to conventional wisdom about mainstream ideas via “reflective solidarity.” - Associate Professor of Political Science and International Studies, Hanyang University, Seoul, South Korea - Editor-in-Chief, Routledge series, IR Theory and Practice in Asia, ( - Editorial board member, The Pacific Review - Research Fellow, University of Warwick, UK - International Relations (IR) theory - Diversity and pluralism in IR - Sociology of knowledge - Philosophy of social science - Postcolonialism - Collective emotion and national identity - International politics in the Asia-Pacific region “An Intellectual Confession from a Member of the ‘Non-Western’ IR Community: A Friendly Reply to David Lake’s “White Man’s IR”, PS: Political Science and Politics, 2019 Find more “Beyond ‘the West/non-West Divide’ in IR”, The Chinese Journal of International Politics, 2018 Find more “Why and How Should We Go for a Multicausal Analysis in the Study of Foreign Policy?: (Meta-) theoretical Rationales and Methodological Rules,”, Review of International Studies, 2012 Find more “Getting Asia Right and Advancing the field of IR,”, Political Studies Review, 2013 Find more “Constructivism: National Identity and Foreign Policy” in Sage Handbook of Asian Foreign Policy, edited by Takashi Inoguchi (Sage, 2019) Find more What is at Stake in Building “Non-Western" IR Theory?

[Faculty][HY's Excellence] A Researcher at the Forefront of Particle Physics, Leading the CMS Experiments

Professor Tae Jeong Kim is a professor of the Department of Physics at Hanyang University and a chairman on the board of the CMS RPC Institute (CERN). For the past few years, Professor Kim has been conducting in-depth research with a compact muon solenoid (CMS) detector to study the smallest particle on Earth and its origin through a coupling with the Higgs particle including Top Quark, and to review the validity of the standard models, in cooperation with more than 200 universities from more than 40 countries. His academic depth and passion to discover how the world was formed and how particles interact led him to the field of particle physics which focuses on dividing particles, the basis of our existence, in order to test their limits and study their interactions. “Our lab deals with basic particles which cannot be further divided. It is basically tracing the activities of basic particles.” He continued his detailed explanation full of passion about particle physics. “I was the first person to publish on the topic of simultaneous creation of two top quarks and two bottom quarks. We identified the process of measuring the levels of interaction between top quarks and Higgs particles in 2015, and we released another paper in 2018 with updated content. Back in 2015, there was no ongoing discussion about this topic.” Professor Kim added that such research will help him find a way to verify the standard model in a variety of ways. Since coming to Hanyang University, he has played an important role in helping Hanyang University become an official member of the CMS Research. He secured a positive vote from the institute by presenting the excellence of Hanyang University himself. “In addition to my efforts, students are also taking important positions in CMS Research. That helped me get elected as chairman of the CMS RPC institute, as such provisions were received comprehensively.” He explained that the atmosphere of multiple teams freely discussing their research findings and coordinating on a variety of projects is a great motivation for him. He also shared his wishes to share such an atmosphere with his domestic research colleagues. Professor Kim has a number of ongoing research projects being conducted with various international research teams. He also noted that he feels the challenges of and necessity for research in new areas alongside with collaboration on the research exchange program funded by National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF) and Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO) in Belgium with the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and the cooperative work with the University of Zurich on the differential cross section measurement of the top quark with two additional b jets. Professor Kim projects that the application of a neuromorphic chip will bring about faster and more accurate experiments in experimental environments, where deep learning is a necessity for big data. He expressed his unrelenting desire to continue research saying that he can’t wait to face his colleagues and the scientific community to continue collaborating in this field. Hopefully, the exchange and cultivation of human resources and the depth of research will become even more active, following the wishes of Professor Kim whose specific achievements have led Korea to reach the status of leading research on major topics at CERN, when just 10 years ago it was an outsider of the prestigious group. - 2019-present Chairperson of the CMS RPC Institution Board - 2019-present Editor of Journal of Korean Physical Society - 2018-present Deputy spokesperson for the Korea-CMS collaboration - 2015-present associate professor, Hanyang University - 2014-2015 assistant professor, Chonbuk National University - 2013-2014 postdoc, Free University of Brussels (VUB), Belgium - 2009-2013 postdoc, Korea-CERN project - 2008-2009 postdoc, University of Iowa, USA - 2007 PhD, Korea University - Measurement of cross section of the top-quark pair production in association with a pair of bottom quarks : After the Higgs (H) boson discovery in 2012 at the LHC at CERN, from the initial measurements, the properties of the H boson seem to be consistent with those from the H boson in the standard model. Furthermore, from analyzing the proton collision data of the LHC, the couplings of a top quark and a bottom quark in the standard model third generation with the H boson were recently discovered in different processes in 2018. However, the confirmation that both couplings are simultaneously consistent with the predictions is only possibly by measuring the unique process where top-quark pairs are produced in association with the H boson where the H boson decays a pair of bottom quarks. This process is yet to be discovered. In the search for new physics phenomena beyond the stadard model, this first time ever measurement is a vital avenue to discover unknown features, i.e. when the measurement would not agree with the predictions of the standard model. - Search for flavor changing neutral current in the top quark sector : Flavor-changing neutral couplings of the top quark to gauge and Higgs bosons are forbidden at tree level and can only appear in loop corrections but suppressed by the Glashow-Iliopoulos-Maiani (GIM) mechanism with the SM branching fraction of 10-15. Since any deviation from the SM would indicate new physics, anomalous interactions of the top quark have been widely searched. In our study, we focus on the flavor-changing neutral Higgs using data collected with the CMS detector at 13 TeV. “Measurement of the cross section ratio sigma(t-tbar b-bbar)/ sigma(t-tbar jj) in pp collistions at 8 TeV”, CMS collaboration (CERN), 2015 Find more “A study of top-quark mass measurement using the lepton energy distribution at the Large Hadron Collider”, EPJC, 2017.

[Faculty][HY's Excellence] The World’s Top 1% Researcher Builds a Scientific Basis for Ultimate Air Quality Improvement

Professor Ki-Hyun Kim is a leading pioneer in the field of environmental engineering and has been researching environmental management for more than 30 years. He has been listed as the ‘2019 Highly Cited Researcher (HCR)’ in November 2019 by Clarivate Analytics, a global academic information company. From around 60 countries, 6,216 researchers were selected as the HCR. Professor Kim is a world-class engineering researcher who has been building the scientific basis to make advanced monitoring tools for various environmental pollution phenomena in air, water, and soil and to develop control techniques for such pollution based on material engineering and related techniques. Professor Kim has written more than 700 papers in peer-reviewed international journals so far. He has been developing various detection/sensing tools to monitor pollution in the atmospheric environment with special emphasis on volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odor, fine dust, and third-hand smoke. He has also been actively conducting research on the synthesis of advanced functional materials as adsorbents and/or catalysts to effectively eliminate pollutants in air. As such, Professor Kim’s research has been extended to cover various fields of environmental engineering by interfacing with material engineering to help open a new path for the effective control on air pollution. “When you conduct research for a long time, your interests may change along with people’s demands. My main area of research these days is how to make advanced functional materials that can clean the air.” Professor Kim focuses on developing new materials such as the metal-organic framework (MOF) to efficiently and effectively control and manage diverse forms of VOCs and odor compounds. Beyond the existing techniques for monitoring or analysis, his work is focusing on the upscaling of the methodology for the real-world applications. Among these goals, Professor Kim is focusing on a substance called formaldehyde, which is considered one of the hard-to-treat harmful components in the air by the common techniques like adsorption or catalysis under highly dynamic conditions like the operation of air purification system. To treat such pollutants efficiently, he is constructing technical guidelines by properly evaluating the performance of various materials. As part of my extra-curricular research, I am focusing on the effect of environmental smoking with respect to both the second hand smoking (indirect inhalation of cigarette smoke from a nearby smoker) as well as the third-hand smoking (the slow desorption of smoke components after the smoking). Likewise, he also studies various issues related to the fine dust problem which has caused constant fear and discomfort, as it became a serious social problem these days. To solve these problems, he is deepening the research from finding out the causes of problem and their solutions such as air purification technology. Even if you have found the cause and its solution, it is difficult to actually commercialize it. There are many factors involved, such as supply and demand, delicacy in upscaling the production process, and the cost. Ultimately, I hope to go beyond all of these limitations to offer a better solution for air filtration technology to improve the quality of our life. Professor Kim, who is most interested in interfacing materials-based control technology with air purification technology, has been challenging new academic fields whenever he found the need for a new breakthrough for the advancement. He has been making outstanding contributions to enhancing the quality of life for people as a top-notch engineer. Further, he is serving as a generation-leading researcher by converging high-end materials for the environmental remediation. Careers (Careers after Ph.

The key research areas of HSCL include: (1) innovative design of composite structures (2) weight reduction of energy-related structures (3) fatigue life prediction of composites (4) thermoplastic composite manufacturing processes, and (5) multiscale of composites. These R&D together with feasibility and proof studies has enabled commercialization of new technology in a short time in the actual industrial field. As one of the core technologies in HSCL, composite life and failure prediction technology, based on a multi-scale approach, not only improves the efficiency of test produces but also ensures the safety of products. For examples of representative industry-academic cooperation research in this field, Singapore's Defense Research Institute (DSO) supported HSCL to characterize the adhesive bonding and to predict the exact residual strength and repair process of the aircraft body. HSCL further enhanced a life prediction technology to predict the fatigue and damage progression inside aircraft composite structures, supported by Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer for the last three years (2017-2019. For the past four years, HSCL also received research supports from TechnipFMC, the world's largest subsea oil and gas pipe manufacturer. Recently, the contract was renewed to aim at developing new thermoplastic composite hybrid flexible pipe that can withstand over 3000 m depth of the seabed with high strength and long life, without causing corrosion in the sea unlike metal pipes. In the year of 2020, HSCL was selected and titled as Center of Excellence for Elium Composites (CEEC) supported by Arkema, a French thermoplastic and advanced materials company, to develop the commercialization technology of thermoplastic composite material in the areas of wind power blades, construction field, hydrogen pressure vessel, automobile parts. In particular, the research support includes a collaboration with Hyundai Motor to apply thermoplastic ELIUM to future thermoplastic composites of automotive parts. HSCL has been also selected as an IUCC (INDUSTRY-UNIVERSITY COLLABORATION CENTER) by Hanyang University in September 2019 to lay the foundation for the mutual growth of Hanyang University and industrial companies. Through this program, HSCL is supported with enough space, equipment, and manpower from the University, and the benefit can be beneficial to member companies such as Arkema, Chomarat, TechnipFMC, Embraer and Hyundai Motors. Companies with IUCC membership will receive the essential technical supports and services from HSCL including the latest commercial composite leading technology, design and equipment resources, business consulting, as well as network sharing between companies. Professor Ha and HSCL researchers will continue to cooperate to revitalize the composite material industry and contribute to society. 2019, Guest Editor of Energies "Application of Composite Materials for Energy Devices" 2019, Guest Editor of Energies "Applications of Nanocomposites for Energy Generator/Harvester Devices" 2019-present, Editor, ChemEngineering 2016-present, Advisory Professor, LG Electronics Manufacturing Technology Center Future-Technology-Forum 2016, LIFE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD WINNER 2016, JEC-WORLD, PARIS 2008-present, Editorial Board, Journal of Reinforced Plastics and Composites 2001-2002; 2008-present, Visiting Professor, Stanford University 1991-present, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Hanyang University 1991-present, Member, Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers 1991-present, Member, American Society of Mechanical Engineering 1991-present, Member, Society of Advanced Manufacturing and Processing Engineering 1991-present, Editorial Board, The Korean Society of Composite Materials 1989-1991, Research Associate, Stanford University 1988, Ph.D. Stanford University 1985, M.S.

[Faculty][HY's Excellence] The best researcher that defines the future of tourism as an interdisciplinary study

Professor Sunghyup Sean Hyun is pioneering the field of “Neo-fusion Tourism” that presents a new paradigm in tourism. He has been studying tourism for nearly 20 years and has published numerous studies on airline, cruises and the convention industry, which are the main features of the tourism industry. He has conducted many comprehensive studies of the qualitative and quantitative aspects of the tourism industry, including the factors of psychological anxiety experienced by flight attendants, the psychological situation of cruise passengers and expectations of others, the establishment of convention centers for the city branding strategy of MICE (Meeting, Incentives, Convention, Exhibition) and the analysis of the luxury tourism market. Throughout 20 years of research and more than 330 tourism studies (SSCI /KCI journals) conducted, he thoughts it was time to present a new paradigm for tourism. "It has been an ongoing concern of mine that focusing only on the major fields of tourism, such as conventions, or airline, and withholding the convergence of other disciplines would limit the synergistic effect. The ultimate goal of our research is to ensure that tourism contributes to the development of society, and a moment of realization occurred that studying pure tourism alone would only constrict us more.” As Professor Hyun contemplated on how tourism can have a greater impact to influence social development, he took note of the medical and the environmental aspects of tourism. “First of all, medicine is the study of the phases of human life from birth, aging, sickness, and death. If tourism can demonstrate the synergistic effect in medical development, the versatility of tourism can be acknowledged to society. In the field of medicine, I studied psychoanalysis, particularly in depression, in conjunction with tourism. Drugs are used to treat depression, and I thought tourism can be possibly approached differently. Namely, through the treatment of depression through travel.” An analysis of 367 American adult men and women (based on an online tourism community) revealed that the more active communication occurs, the more people’s effect of the three types of loneliness (social loneliness, family loneliness, and romantic loneliness) decreases, which leads to a lower depression index. Professor Hyun's research goes further by integrating social psychology’s “set point” theory to find ways to make traveling a good long term method to treat depression in a semi-permanent way. It has been shown that if tourism studies provide a new direction for psychotherapy, it can greatly contribute to the increase of the human happiness index as well as economic growth. In other words, by adding tourism therapy treatment methods along with the drug treatment techniques from medicine, the medical and tourism field will build on together and contribute to social development and happiness. This is what Professor Hyun’s "Nep-fusion Tourism " represents. Another neo-fusion tourism field that Professor Hyun has called attention to is the integration between the environment and tourism. Professor Hyun says that environmental problems, such as fine dust and environmental pollution, must be solved by tourism for people’s happiness and their well-being. Hyun said, “We researched the degree of ignorance of environmental awareness where tourists have no connections towards the environment and how to overcome this problem.” Based on the result of surveying 321 tourists for three years, Professor Hyun divided the factors on how to extend tourists' consistent responsibility for environmental protection that has no relevance towards the environment into five categories. Among them, he discovered that 'Recognition of Environmental Value' is the most important category, and further research is continuously being conducted regarding this category. If the following results create a policy to go into effect, this study can be a major component in drastically reducing the amount of fine dust/pollution. Tourism contributes to improve the quality of human life as an interdisciplinary study. This is the direction Professor Hyun's "Neo-fusion Tourism" lies ahead. Professor Hyun emphasizes that it is a researcher's job to be interested in an unchallenged path. “The goal is to build a strong identity of tourism as an interdisciplinary study by combining diverse fields of medicine, psychology, business administration, economics, engineering, etc. and to recognize the important role that tourism plays in society,” he stated. Despite the current tourism industry, which focuses only on high profitability, the future of tourism is secured by incorporating “Neo-fusion Tourism” established by professor Hyun.

[Faculty][HY's Excellence] Outstanding Environmentally-friendly Impact Evaluation Technology Research for Sustainable Architecture Development for the 21st Century

Professor Sungho Tae, the head of the Hanyang University Sustainable Building Research Center, is developing a commercializing program that deduces various environmental impacts on the global environment throughout the life cycle of building materials and buildings. Whole-step environmental evaluation programs such as the Sustainable Total Evaluation Program for Building (STEP-B) that Professor Tae’s lab has developed and the Sustainable Total Evaluation Program for Concrete (STEP-C) are in use as tools for eco-friendliness evaluation, and his lab is the only group that conducts such research in Korea. Professor Tae studied at Tokyo University as he was interested in high strength concrete, which is the main material for skyscrapers. Japan’s world-class environmentally friendly architectural material research’s provisions and values inspired him to study in this field. His environmentally friendly building performance evaluation and high-end technology research lab (suBest) is developing a “goal-oriented environmentally friendly optimal planning system” through a building’s environment load decreasing model and evaluation technology development. One of the most important aspects of eco-friendly building research is the evaluation of eco-friendliness in quantitative ways. STEP-B, which was developed by his research lab, evaluates the level of environmental friendliness of building processes such as greenhouse gas emissions, and STEP-C measures the environmental friendliness of concrete materials. There have been few scholars and papers studying such methodologies, and suBest is the only domestic research lab that has developed them as an industrial tool. The STEP-B program in particular is now being used to evaluate the environmental friendliness of architectural structures in G-SEED (a certificate system of Korea that is given to eco-friendly buildings). Professor Tae focuses on sustainable architecture which has evolved from green architecture. He was first introduced to Completely Recyclable Concrete at the materials research lab at Tokyo University. It allows concrete that is disused after the demolition of a building to be recycled and utilized as a new building material after decomposition. Recycling becomes possible, even for environmentally unfriendly aggregates, when they are coated during the construction phases. He was shocked to know that concrete can be considered an eco-friendly material as it is completely recyclable. After this epiphany, Professor Tae is now focusing on research that studies sustainable architecture and brings new ideas to Korean architecture. In the past, eco-friendly architecture was called various terms such as ecological building, green building, and environmentally symbiotic building. At the time, there was a tendency to think of eco-friendly architecture as simply coexisting with nature. If the past trend was to decrease energy use and the emission of greenhouse gases while using materials that are assimilated to nature, current sustainable architecture is a concept that harmonizes environmental, social, and economic factors of architecture. His focus is on forming a quantitative evaluation method to reach the target performance when making eco-friendly buildings and building materials. Also, it focuses on developing various eco-friendly building technologies that can evaluate and adjust environmental, social, and economic impact on the global environment in relation to the complete life-cycle including the production, use, and disuse of a building or of building materials, going beyond the past goal of lower energy-consuming technology development, through high-efficiency heating and cooling facilities and the application of high insulation/high density construction materials. Professor Tae has published more than sixty SCI-level papers. He received the Hanyang University Best Faculty Award (June 2019) as the excellence of his research was recognized, and his outcomes are evaluated so favorably that the has received the Best Dissertation Award from KOFST (June 2018) and the Minister’s award from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport (December 2014). Leading the technology commercialization, he registered an intellectual patent and his eco-friendly building and building material evaluation program was commercialized, and he is now putting much effort into transferring and providing technologies. Data gathering and analysis can be considered his core technologies as his research analyzes a vast amount of data and creates databases and evaluation methods. Therefore, he has requested active cooperation from scholars and researchers in the same field to contribute to society and to implement such technologies as national standards. In his lab there are not only Chinese students but also Swedish students who hail from the world’s most environment-focused country. His desire to become a true professional is evidenced by his studying throughout the course of his whole life, and he hopes his students become mature people who exercise professionalism in the service of humanity. Professor Tae was also honored with the Best Faculty Award as he received good reviews of his lectures from his students, and since he served as vice-chair of the Hanyang University Volunteer Corps and the chair of the Center for Students with Disabilities. 2016 ~ present Director of The Korean Society for Life cycle Assessment 2016 ~ present Associate Editor of International Journal of Sustainable Building Technology & Urban Development 2015 ~ present Director of Sustainable Building Research Center 2013 ~ present Expert member of Carbon Labeling Certification, Korea Environmental Industry and Technology Institute 2012 ~ present Director of International Sustainable Council 2010 ~ present Expert Member of ISO/Fairness Committee 2009 ~ present Expert Member of Industrial Standards Council (ISO TC 184/SC 5) 2008 ~ present Professor at Hanyang University Department of Architecture 2005 ~ 2008 Research Assistant Professor of Hanyang University Sustainable Building Research Center(ERC) 2002 ~ 2005 Doctor of Engineering / Tokyo University Graduate School College of Engineering Sciences (Japan) / Architectural Engineering 2000 ~ 2002 Master of Engineering / Tokyo University Graduate School College of Engineering Sciences (Japan) / Architectural Engineering 1992 ~1999 Bachelor of Engineering / Hanyang University College of Engineering Sciences (Korea) / Architectural Engineering Life Cycle Assessment(LCA) program for buildings : LCA program for buildings is a program that evaluates the impact on the environment during the life cycle stages of the building, which is applicable for quantitatively assessing the sustainable performance in the construction design stage, with the development of interconnected programs with domestic and international Green Building Rating Systems(G-SEED, LEED) LCA program and Life Cycle Inventory Database(LCI DB) for construction materials : LCA program for construction materials is a program that evaluates the environmental impacts occurred in the production life cycle level of construction materials, which allows drawing the environmental impact of the overall process of collecting raw materials to product manufacturing, and forming database of LCI DB of the evaluation information of building materials, thus providing the base data for architect LCA.

[Student]“Paving My Way and Future with Experiences” - An Interview of Students with Excellent Internship Results

The job market is becoming fiercer every day. Now it is time to compete with special experiences that nobody has. Here are individuals who have made their own stories from the field experiences of internship programs. These individuals are having their achievements acknowledged during their internship periods: Lee Yeong-ho (Division of Electrical Engineering Class of `13) and Kim Hyeon-seo (Department of Industrial Management Engineering Class of `14) got the Best Internship Award from Hyosung Power & Industrial Systems R&D Center and Ryu Tae-yeong (Department of Marine Science and Convergence Engineering Class of `15) received an award from Korea Rural Community Corporation. We met the three who got to have a big certainty through field experiences and awards. Q1. Your achievements were acknowledged by the corporations you worked in. How do you feel? Lee Yeong-ho (Electrical Engineering `13): I was not thinking of getting the award and did not expect it as well. I appreciate the award although there were people who were more hardworking than I am. Kim Hyeon-seo (Industrial Management Engineering `14): I did not expect the award. I guess the corporation had a good image of me as I tried my best until the end despite I found it hard to adapt in the beginning. Ryu Tae-yeong (Marine Science and Convergence Engineering `15): It is all thanks to Professor Shiin Seong-won who suggested the internship in the first place. I am happy about this but I also wonder if I am qualified for this award. Q2. What made you do an internship and with what criteria did you choose corporations? Lee Yeong-ho: After being a senior and started writing letters of self-introduction for job-seeking, I realized that I lack special experiences or stories, from the perspective of corporations. As I decided to have some field experiences before joining a company, I applied for the job sectors I was interested in. Electrical Engineering that I was interested in was the nearest to Hyosung Power & Industrial Systems R&D Center. Kim Hyeon-seo: Among my coursemates, there was a friend who did an internship at Hyosung. After listening to the story, my passion for the internship got bigger. In the phases of application, my friend actually cheered me a lot and gave me a lot of tips for application and interview. Ryu Tae-yeong: My professor recommended me for an internship. Although there were many other corporations other than the Korea Rural Community Corporation, I thought the work there would fit me best. The field is close to my subjects of interest and as the job is active, mainly science experiments, it fits well with my personality that cannot stay motionless. Ryu Tae-yeong received an award from the Korea Rural Community Corporation. Q3. Tell us about the department you worked in and your main tasks. Lee Yeong-ho: I was in the DC Grid team of Hyosung. It researches values to commercialize in the future industrial market and proves that the corporation has such technologies. We cooperated not only with research labs in many universities but also with other corporations. During undergraduate years, I just checked whether something works with a software tool, but I was able to experience the production and inventory. It is a process of making hardware. As I was interested in this sector, it became a meaningful experience. Kim Hyeon-seo: I was in the Technology Management team of Hyosung. It manages and plans research tasks, which are the most valued in the research lab. We not only value, manage, check, and pre-investigate the progress of tasks, but also deliver research tasks through contacting other companies and cooperating with universities. It is the center of the research lab. Through Hyosung’s original system, research tasks are under control. Ryu Tae-yeong: Korea Rural Community Corporation has the largest experiment lab in the East. A representative task is the Saemangeum Embankment project. We had a mock experiment under the request for repair. When my manager told me how to conduct the experiment, I did the experiment and delivered the result to researchers. They analyzed the results and numbers and students conducted experiments with technicians. Q4. What did you learn through the internship? Lee Yeong-ho: I tried to approach to elder seniors. Plus, I was able to experience the process - how works are done in a company. I also learned how to behave in different situations as it is my first time doing the job. My undergraduate knowledge was a background knowledge but active works, in the beginning, were hard. After I adapted to the atmosphere, it fits my interests and I could feel some joy while testing the products. It was attractive that the lab not only does tests and experiments but also has other business works such as meeting with other companies, meaning that there were various works. Kim Hyeon-seo: I learned a lot about interpersonal relationships. I approached my team members by asking for help and asking if there is anything to help because I have to work for a long time in the team. By using programs such as Excel and Powerpoint, my productivity and working capacity were increased. At first, I was astonished because of simple tasks but I tried my best to use my maximum capacity in parts that I can do. I even suggested a project to them. I guess I received the award since it worked out well. Ryu Tae-yeong: If you have set your goals firmly, working in the relevant field and company will be a great help for you when preparing for the job and after you get the job. I could learn professional knowledge from field experts, not from education in schools. This made a difference between me and competitors. Probably, an internship is an experience of social lives. Living a social life is not an easy thing but there surely will be someone to help you when you do your best by yourself. Those people are reliable people when you have hardships. Q5. Share us some words and tips for students preparing for an internship. Lee Yeong-ho: Many students are hesitant about an internship. They might take short-term internships into consideration when a long-term internship is burdensome. In the case of people who do not realize the situation of the current job market, experiences from an internship will raise your own value and make yourself to see your future path clearly. In selecting candidates by examining personal career papers, I think emphasizing my undergraduate lab internship and my organization-friendly personality meant a lot. Kim Hyeon-seo: Hanyang’s internship program is well-established and there is even a building for it. It is good to visit the center. You can get counseling and data about companies. I recommend you to get advice from friends who have done an internship. However, first of all, I strongly recommend you to apply for an internship when you feel the necessity for an internship by yourself so that you want to work in the actual field. Further, I tried to show my passion for the field of interest by pointing out my experiences of helping my professor during the undergraduate years in the resume and in the interview, I emphasized my ability to adapt to any environment. Ryu Tae-yeong: My professor who recommended me the internship have said what is more important than my GPA is ‘an attitude to work hard, without using tricks’. It is important to look up information about internships by yourself. When preparing for the internship, I stressed that I have a lot of interests since my major is relevant to the company’s main field. It became good merit to study in this department because works in the Korea Rural Community Corporation can be hard when they do not go along with your interest. In interviews, if you show a will to work hard with confidence, you can pass the process, so please try first of all without hesitating. Q6. What are your future plans and dreams? Lee Yeong-ho: I am preparing to get into a company with a job that I desire. I want to find work where I can show my true qualities. I hope that trying my best on the given work would help the society also. Kim Hyeon-seo: I am feeling pride in the fact that now there are many stories that I can tell after going through the field experience. I would like to work at a company where I can use my full qualities. Ryu Tae-yeong: I thought that it would be difficult before, but through this experience, I now have confidence that I will be able to get a job that fits my major 100%. This became an opportunity for me to decide to study harder. Hanyang University's field experience program, 'HY-WEB', provides students with the field experience related to one's major and an opportunity to search on one's career. Students who participate in the program go through short·long term training processes at a government organization, company, laboratory or nonprofit organization, which are organizations that fit the field experience requirements provided by the Ministry of Education, and are registered at the Center for Academic Placement Support. It is expected to give students the chance to improve their abilities regarding their majors through a clear selection of careers and various experiences, also enhancing their executive abilities in the end. The process is usually done through first submitting the documents through the website, holding interviews at each company, and making a final selection at the end. Global News Team

[Student]A Book for Exchange Students <Europe, Exchange Student: Between Beer and Tea>

Kim So-yeon (Division of International Studies, senior) and Hong Do-won (Korea University, senior) published a book for students preparing for life as an exchange student titled Europe, Exchange Student: Between Beer and Tea. The book deals with a wide range of areas starting from preparing to be an exchange student to what it is like to live around the local area. The book contains detailed information on life in the United Kingdom and Germany, as well as traveling to Europe, which is also useful to those planning of staying in Europe for a month or so. When the term 'exchange student' is searched for on a search engine, a vast amount of advice appears, starting from the application process to packing tips. Kim came up with the idea of the book, thinking that it would be helpful if there was someone that could gather this information and organize it all together. To Kim, the exchange student experience from last fall of 2018 was her first time living abroad. The information that she needed was neither the price nor the departure process, but on the culture and life of the people around the local area. Kim described the vagueness that she felt about living abroad, mentioning that "people post much information on personal blogs about preparing to be an exchange student, but not so much after leaving Korea." ▲ Kim So-yeon (Division of International Studies, senior) published a book on being an exchange student in the United Kingdom and Germany through crowdfunding. The funding reached more than 3 times its original goal. Kim started writing the book as soon as she began leaving as an exchange student. The hardships and new information that she faced were immediately recorded in the writing, which added specificity to the book. She also collected information on other areas of Europe, which she gained through traveling around the area herself. Kim stated that she "tried to include information that can be both applied to the United Kingdom and Germany," such as in, "how to buy products online when there is no supermarket around." Kim finished the first draft of the book last September, and, in the following month, a contract with a designer was made. While she was originally planning on only publishing an E-Book, she changed her plans after the recommendation from a designer who also worked as a one-person publisher. Because there is a fixed number of minimum prints, printing paperbacks comes with cost and risks. Kim explained that she "conducted crowdfunding simply to meet the printing cost, regardless of any extra profit." ▲ Europe, Exchange Student: Between Beer and Tea is currently going through a second edition editing. Following sales on paperback and E-Book will be made through Aladin. (Provided by Kim So-yeon) Publishing paperback books does not stop on writing the book itself, including processes such as sales, delivery management, and marketing. For example, many thoughts were required when deciding the goods that come along with the crowdfunding rewards. Kim and her co-writer planned for a coin purse and a shopping bag that would come in handy when living in Europe, but after considering the minimum number of quantity of the customized products, they changed it to cups and postcards. Due to the characteristics of crowdfunding, the funding initiator has to make packages and deliver the products directly, not through signing a contract with an outside shipping company. This makes it difficult for them to track the delivery processes and costs. Kim mentioned that "there were some number of cases where the books were lost during the delivery process and sent again because we were not able to find them." Reactions from those who received the book were very positive. On a social network platform, many reviews followed, such as "it helped me greatly on reducing unnecessary packages." It reached the original goal starting from the first day of crowdfunding, reaching 309% of the accumulated amount of money by the end date. "I give thanks to my parents, the friends around me who offered help, the Office of International Affairs of Hanyang University, and all of the readers," mentioned Kim. She also added that "it would have been better if I had had more insights on the marketing." The book, Europe, Exchange Student: Between Beer and Tea is currently going through a revision after its first edition and will soon be seen as an E-Book on Aladin.

[Student]Hanyang's Shakespeare from the Spring Literacy Contest

In the past, publishing was extremely difficult for a new author. To support them, Korea’s major newspapers held the spring literacy contest (신춘문예, Shinchunmunye) on the first of January each year since 1925, giving new writers a chance to publish their prize-winning entries and make their debut as a writer. Although private publication has become easier nowadays via SNS, the spring literacy contest still holds its status as the time-honored, formal gateway into literacy. This year, three Hanyangians, Shin Hye-yeong, Lim Ji-hoon, and Kim Ji-woo, earned the glory of winning the 2020 contest. Among them, Kim Ji-woo (Department of English Language and Literature, 4th year) won in the play category with Path at the early age of 24. Path, a play authored by Kim Ji-woo (Department of English Language and Literature, 4th year), won the spring literacy contest play category this year. Path is a short play in which two child characters, Mino and Ir go on a journey tied on a freight train from Mexico to America in search for a better life. Kim gained inspiration from a documentary she had seen eight years ago. The play was “raw,” described the judges, “as if the author was the actor herself moving on the stage,” and “has high literary potential,” even compared to ‘The Little Prince’ by Saint-Exupéry. Winning was unexpected for Kim as Path was her first-ever play work. “I’ve loved writing since I was a child but only recently decided to pursue the career as a writer. Even then, my goal was to become a musical writer. So Path was the first play that I wrote,” said Kim. However, Kim said she always liked watching plays and feeling their vivid atmosphere. “I watch two to six plays a month. Sometimes they would sell the script, so I would buy them and study.” Path is a story of two 15-year-old Mexican children heading to America by clinging onto a freight train.

"The hypothesis behind the story is that imagination is the driving force of life. This particular scene delivered it very well," said Kim. "I also wanted to write the story somewhat vaguely. It was hard, but people who read the play gave me their different interpretations, which were fun and interesting." Path will be performed on stage around March and April, as part of the one-act play of the spring literacy contest prize-winning entries. Kim spoke of her aspiration as a now-formal writer that she has many ideas and stories that are waiting to become a play in the future. “I’m still quite dazed by the fact that my play won such an honorable contest. I will always aspire to become a better writer,” said Kim. Kim has many ideas and stories that she will turn into plays in the future. (Photo courtesy of Kim) Lim Ji-woo Photos by Lee Hyeon-seon

[Faculty]The Expedition to Living Knowledge

Mark Twain said that every person is a book, each year a chapter. People seek the meaning of life through their experiences. Here is Professor You Yeong-mahn (Department of Educational Technology), a knowledge ecologist who integrates people's experiences into new knowledge. Professor You Yeong-mahn (Department of Educational Technology) is a knowledge ecologist who integrates people's experiences into new knowledge. Communicating with the public You is well-known for his active communication with the public. You featured intermittently in television programs such as tvN’s No Way I’m an Adult and CBS’s Sebasi Talk. You delivers simple but permeating messages – such as tree (namu) does not blame (namurada) anyone. “There is a big difference between the role of a university lecturer and a public speaker,” said You. “The message should be concise and thought-provoking towards the public.” Knowledge ecology labels the general public as an agent of knowledge management. You's exposure to mass media is deeply related to knowledge ecology. You has published 88 books that meet the public interest. Besides, You posts a series of articles through social media where he interacts with his subscribers. You recently published Do Not Meet Someone Like This, which builds on his posts on Brunch, an SNS platform. It is a book that covers human relations. “What determines who I am is who I meet,” said You. “People should reflect on themselves before judging others.” You advises people to look back on themselves through Do Not Meet Someone Like This. (Photo courtesy of Namusaenggak) Curved rather than being straightforward You recalled his astonishment upon reading the comments on an article introducing Do Not Meet Someone Like This. “Some expressed mere anger and hostility without even reading the book,” said You. “What I found was a heartless atmosphere in society.” You referred to modern society as ‘straightforward,’ where you are faced with fierce competition. “People are demanded to aim further, work harder, and achieve faster,” explained You. “All that remains is emptiness.” You criticized current social conditions by citing Antoni Gaudi’s words, "The straight line belongs to men, the curved one to God." The knowledge ecologist proposed ‘curved’ values such as – diversity, harmony, and flexibility – as an alternative social discourse. “Curved values are enlightened through experience,” said You. The professor defined them as wisdom accumulated from continuous trial and error. They provide solutions to hardship with insights that hit the bull's-eye. Yoo suggested 'curved' values of – diversity, harmony, and flexibility – as an alternative to 'straightforward' social discourse. Experience as the source of creativity You recounted how his experiences led to creativity. “I helped my parents as a farmer, worked as a welder, and read books as a student,” said the knowledge ecologist. You said his experiences converged into a database. Along with extensive reading, it became a source of his unique content. You encouraged students of Hanyang to compile their database. “You need language to visualize what you think,” advised You. “There is no sense if you are in the absence of vocabulary.” The professor suggested that students read and behave. “Reading is rather physical labor than mental labor,” said You. “In order to master what you read, experience and reading should be done at the same time.” You highlighted the importance of experience as well as reading books. Some people say that a concept without experience is vain, and a thoughtless experience is dangerous. You is exploring the ecosystem of knowledge through his experience and interaction with the public. Oh Kyu-jin Photos by Kim Ju-eun
