Professor Heejung Jung received his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota, and received both his M.S. and B.S. degrees from Seoul National University in Mechanical Engineering. Upon completion of his masters, he joined Hyundai as a research engineer. He later completed his postdoc research at UC Davis before joining UCR and CE-CERT.

Research Topics

His current interest is mitigation of air pollution and green-house gases/particles. He is also interested in fuel and additives, as they are the source of power and emissions through the combustion process. Specific research topics include alternative fuels & additives, aftertreatment system, physical and chemical characterization of combustion generated gas & particle emissions, toxicity of nanomaterials & atmospheric nanoparticles, kinetics of reacting particle, and nanomaterial synthesis via aerosol & combustion route.
