Dr. Yong Sung Park from University of Dundee delivers hydrodynamics lecture on November 8th


Yong Sung Park studied in the Department of Civil Engineering at Seoul National University in Korea with Bachelor’s degree in 1999 and Master’s degree in 2001. In 2004, he went to Cornell University initially supported by the Korea Science and Engineering Foundation and obtained his PhD from the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering in 2009. He continued at Cornell as a Research Associate/Lecturer for two years. He went to Dundee in 2011 as a Newton International Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering. The two-year fellowship supported his research on the dynamic response of cohesive sediments to ocean surface waves. From April 2013, he was appointed as a Lecturer in Civil Engineering. At the same time, he was awarded a five-year Royal Society of Edinburgh/Scottish Government Personal Research Fellowship co-funded by the Marie-Curie Actions, which supports his research on dynamics of extremely long coastal waves. He is now a Senior Lecturer at University of Dundee. His research interests lie in theoretical fluid mechanics and experimental verification in the context of environmental fluids, surf-zone dynamics, tsunamis, and wave-seabed interactions.
