Jae-Young Jung is a Ph.D. candidate in Materials Science and Engineering Program at UC San Diego. He received his BS and MS degree from Dankook University in South Korea, majoring in Chemical Engineering. He worked at U&i Corporation and Korea Institute of Science and Technology on development of biomedical devices. In Dr. McKittrick’s lab, Jae-Young is performing interdisciplinary researches on metal/ceramic porous scaffold, biological materials investigation, and imaging analysis. He is a recipient of Jacobs School of Engineering Fellowship and participating the UCSD Interfaces Training Program supported by HHMI and NIBIB at NIH. His current dissertation topic is supported by the AFOSR, DOD. Jae-Young has authored 17 papers in peer-reviewed journals such as Scientific Reports, Advanced Materials, and Acta Biomaterialia. Jae-Young plans to work on biological materials investigation using advanced biomedical imaging techniques, then employ these lessons to design biomaterials and biomedical devices that can be beneficial to society.
