KAIST graduate receives PECASE award from the White House
Recognized for research potential in radiation tolerant semiconductor devices and gas sensorsAwards ceremony to be held at the White House in spring 2016
Dr. Jin-Woo Han, a graduate of KAIST, was named among the 105 recipients of the 2016 Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE).
Established in 1996, the PECASE Awards recognize young scientists and engineers who are expected to make significant contributions to scientific developments in the United States. Awardees receive funding for up to five years.
Dr. Han is actively involved in the development of radiation tolerant semiconductor devices and gas sensors under Dr. Meyya Meyyappan, Chief Scientist of the Center for Nanotechnology at the NASA Ames Research Center.
The awards ceremony will be held at the White House in spring 2016, in the presence of President Barack Obama.
Dr. Han earned his doctoral degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering at KAIST in 2010. In the same year, he was sent to the NASA Ames Research Center, where he is now working as a full-time researcher.
KAIST and the NASA Ames Research Center signed a research collaboration agreement in 2008. To date, KAIST has sent 12 post-doctoral fellows to the center. Two more fellows will be sent within the year.
※What is the NASA Ames Research Program for KAIST Post-Doctoral Researchers? A research collaboration agreement was signed between KAIST and NASA in 2008. Every year, KAIST sends one or two post-doctoral fellows to the NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) as part of the NASA Ames Research Program for KAIST Post-Doctoral Researchers. At the end of the contract, the fellows can choose to return to KAIST or continue working at NASA ARC. To date, KAIST has sent a total of 12 post-doctoral fellows. NASA ARC has demonstrated a high regard for KAIST researchers and expects to continue running the program.
