Education: 

Ph.D. Industrial Engineering, 1995, University of Pittsburgh
M.S. Industrial Engineering, 1992, University of Pittsburgh
B.E.S. Materials Science and Engineering, 1983, Johns Hopkins University

Courses Taught: 

INDE 3362 CAD/CAM
INDE 6370 OR: Digital Simulation

Research Interests: 

Dr. Chung's research interest are in the areas of management, operations, and equipment training simulators, educational simulators, and discrete event simulation.

This includes interactive simulators for responding to bomb threats and implementing Advanced Manufacturing Technology projects. He has also conducted research on the operation of airport security checkpoints under increased threat conditions and simultaneous service approaches to reduce airport check in times. Dr. Chung's research has received funding from the U.S. Department of Justice and Continental Airlines.

Dr. Chung is a former U.S. Army bomb disposal officer and NEST team member. He is a graduate of a citizens' police academy course. He has also worked as a manufacturing quality engineer with the Michelin Tire Corporation.
