Hyung-Jo Jung, Professor Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST), Daejeon 34141, South Korea
Dr. Jung's research interests has been mainly in the areas of structural control and dynamics, natural and man-made hazards mitigation, smart structures and materials, earthquake engineering, and wind engineering. Since early his academic career, he has focused on structural control using MR dampers and become a leading expert in innovation of MR technology by developing self-sensing and self-powering MR actuators for controlling large structures. Beyond MR research, he has worked on several emerging research such as structural health monitoring using smart sensor technologies and energy harvesting from ambient and environmental sources (such as vibrations and winds). More recently, he is at the forefront of investigating bridge inspection technologies using unmanned aerial vehicles and artificial intelligence (e.g., deep learning).
