Kyung Jae Jeong

Kyung Jae Jeong is an assistant professor in the chemical engineering department at the University of New Hampshire (UNH), where he began teaching in 2013. He specializes in biomaterials and their applications in medicine. Before teaching at UNH, Dr. Jeong worked with ophthalmologists at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary during his postdoc training, and his collaborative work with them continues. He has mentored several undergraduates conducting research, but Ryann Boudreau is the first to contribute to Inquiry. He finds it rewarding to train undergraduate students, and he was particularly pleased that Ryann was a coauthor of an article about their work published in a major biomaterials journal in summer 2018.
