Jae-Hun Jung

Professor, Chair, Department of Mathematics & Director, POSTECH MINDS

I completed my Ph. D. from the Division of Applied Mathematics of Brown University under the supervision of Prof. David Gottlieb. My dissertation titled "Multi-domain spectral penalty method for hyperbolic systems : Theory and Application" won the Joukowsky Outstanding Dissertation Award. After I graduated from Brown, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia with Prof. Bernie D. Shizgal as my postdoctoral advisor. I was also a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences(PIMS). After the postdoctoral position, I have been an assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and an assistant and associate professor at the SUNY Buffalo. I was also a professor in the Department of AI & Data Science at Ajou University before I joined POSTECH in 2020. Before then, I received my BS and MS in Astrophysics from the Department of Astronomy of Seoul National University with Prof. Changbom Park as advisor. My Master's thesis was on the generation of the cosmic primordial magnetic fields in the early Universe. Mathematics and cosmology are where my passion always resides.
