Two team members Kun Wang and Chuanqi Liu received travel awards to attend Meshfree and Particle Methods Workshop at Santa Fe September 10-12, 2018
PhD student Kun Wang and postdoc research scientist Dr. Chuanqi Liu have received travel grant to present their work at the upcoming Meshfree and Particle Methods: Application and Theory, to be held in Santa Fe, NM, September 10-12, 2018. Chuanqi will present his previous work conducted at Tsinghua University, while Kun will discuss his work on metal-modeling of complex materials in the poster session. The support will cover the registration and travel for both team members. We thank the organizers for providing the support to us.
My PhD student SeonHong Na has accepted the offer to join McMaster University (Canada) as an assistant professor of civil engineering
It is my great pleasure to announce that my PhD student SeonHong Na has accepted a tenure-track position as assistant professor in the department of civil engineering at McMaster University in Canada. He will officially join McMaster in the spring of 2019. SeonHong joined our research group as PhD student in Fall 2014 after obtained his B.S. (2008) and M.S. (2010) in civil engineering from Seoul National University, Korea. Prior to joining Columbia, he worked as a civil engineer for two years (Kunhwa, Korea) and spent another two years in Coastal Development & Ocean Energy Division in Korea Institute of Ocean Science and Technology (KIOST) as a research scientist. SeonHong's research is currently funded by Army Research Office (frozen soil) and the DOE NEUP (crystalline rock) as well as the Fulbright Fellowship and has just recently graduated in July 2018. He is the 2nd PhD graduated from our group and the 3rd research group members who secured tenure-track position, following Yang Liu (Northeastern) and Jinhyun Choo (University of Hong Kong) since 2014. His published journal articles during the last 3+ years at Columbia are listed below.
Congratulations again, SeonHong!
