Keynote Speakers

Keynote Speaker I

Prof. Young Sun Mok
Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Jeju National University, Jeju, South Korea

Professor Young Sun Mok received the B.S. degree in chemical engineering from Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea, in 1989, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in chemical engineering from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), in 1991 and 1994, respectively. He has been with the Department of Chemical Engineering, Jeju National University, Korea, since 2000. He spent a year at the University of Manchester (School of Chemistry), UK, as a visiting researcher in 2007. During the last two decades, he has studied applications of non-thermal plasma to pollution (air/water) control, energy production and material syntheses, and he is widening his plasma research horizon to meet various industrial needs, including plasma-mediated hydrophobic coating of powdery materials, sterilization of microorganisms, heterogeneous catalyst preparation, etc. He is a life member of the Korean Institute of Chemical Engineers and the Korean Society of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry. 

Keynote Speaker II

Prof. James T. Anderson
West Virginia University, USA
Topic: "Pollution Effects on Fish and Wildlife Communities"

Dr. Jim Anderson is a professor of wildlife ecology and management, Davis-Michael Professor of Forestry and Natural Resources, Program Coordinator for the Wildlife and Fisheries Resources Program, and the Director of the Environmental Research Center at West Virginia University.  He earned a B.S. in wildlife from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, an M.S. in range and wildlife management through the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, and a Ph.D. in wildlife science from Texas Tech University.  Jim has published over 120 scientific research articles on wetland ecology and management, wildlife-habitat relationships, and restoration ecology.


Keynote Speaker II

Prof. Ki-Hyun Kim 
Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Hanyang University, South Korea

Prof. Ki-Hyun Kim has been working on the following areas:

-Development and establishment of detection methods for hazardous/odorous pollutants and heavy metals along with the establishment of basic QA for those pollutants. 

-Carbon capture and storage based on development and performance evaluation of diverse sorbent materials.

-Sorptive removal and regeneration cycle in the treatment of airborne pollutants

He was awarded a National Star Faculty offered by the Korean Ministry of Education, Science and Technology in 2006.  He is currently serving as editorial members of journals like Sensors, Scientific World, and several others.  He has published more than 300 articles in peer-reviewed international SCI journals.
