Biography summary

Prof. Jeong Whan Yoon is currently Professor of Applied Mechanics (Head of Advanced Manufacturing) at Deakin University, Australia. Before he joined Deakin, he led AusAMRC (Australian Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Boeing) at Swinburne University as Research Director from 2010 to 2013. AusAMRC, which opened in November 2009, is part of 12 global networks of collaborating Boeing-engaged research centers around the world. His research focus is mainly on mechanics of the lightweight materials including aluminum, Mg & Ti, and composite. He has published over 180 technical papers for international journals and conferences (over 2,200 Citations; H-index of 25). He received “2008 International Journal of Plasticity Award” for outstanding contributions in the field of plasticity. He has been serving as an “Editorial-Board” member for International Journal of Plasticity since 2008. As guest editors, he edited three special issues at Int. J. Plasticity and one issue at Int. J. Solids & Structures. He also has diverse industry experiences including LG Electronics (Korea) for product development, MSC Software Corporation (USA) for MSC. Nastran & Marc source code development and Alcoa Technical Center (USA) for leading the development of constitutive models for various aluminum applications. He served as the chairman of NUMISHEET2014 conference which is the most important conference in the field of sheet metal forming modeling and simulation. He received his PhD at KAIST in 1997.
