Congratulations to Dr. Hyoung Suk Suh for successfully defending his PhD dissertation (see URL). We are very grateful to other committee members, Professor Ronaldo Borja, Professor George Deodatis, Professor Majid Manzari and Professor Haim Waisman for their suggestions and feedbacks, and the Army Research Office and National Science Foundation for providing the financial support for his PhD study.
Hyoung Suk joined my research group in 2018 from Yonsei University. He has published the following works during his tenure at Columbia. His PhD work focuses on the microporomechanics of geomaterials at extreme temperature with implications on how climate changes may affect the freeze-thaw action in frozen soil in Alaska. In addition to his research accomplishment, Hyoung Suk is also a beloved TA and had also been nominated as the candidate for the Presidential awards for outstanding teaching at Columbia twice.
Dr. Suh, thank you for the 4 years of hard work and dedications! It is a privilege to serve as your PhD advisor and colleague!
