Professor Nosang V. Myung received his B.S. M.S. and Ph.D. Degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1994, 1997, and 1998, respectively. He spent three years as an Electroplating and Surface Finishing research engineer at the same institution. In 2001-2003, he joined micro electromechanical systems (MEMS) group at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), which is one of NASA's centers, as a member of the engineering staff. Currently, he is a full professor and chair of the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at University of California, Riverside.
Dr. Myung’s research interests are focused on the synthesis of nanoengineered materials and the implementation of these materials in various advanced applications including spintronics, sensors, electronics, optoelectronics, energy harvesting, and environmental remediation. Dr. Myung’s group objective is to control nanoscale sized features to enhance material properties and device functions beyond those that we currently know.
During his career, he received a few awards including University of California Regent Fellowship, Jet Propulsion Laboratory Spot Award, Abner Brenner gold medal award from American Electroplaters and Surface Finishers Society (AESF), First time author’s award from Plating and Surface Finishing, National Science Foundation graduate fellowship, Department of Education fellowship, American Electroplating and Surface Finishing Summer Scholarship, Electrochemical Society Student Grant, Hughes Aircraft Company Scholarship and Korean American Edward Lee Scholarship.
