Ph.D. Student

Yang-su Jeong (’10) – 2nd semester (part-time)

Master Student

Min Woo Park (’17) – 1st semester (pull time)

My research interests are understanding the structure and function of forest ecosystem and how to effectively manage forests. My research topic is “Understanding impacts of disturbances such as pest-induced diseases and soil compaction on tree growths and carbon uptake in urban forests”.

Young-Hyun Jeon (’19) – 1st semester (pull time)

I am interested in carbon cycle, biodiversity, wildfire, and forest ecology. My recent research project was “Comparative analysis of wildfire characteristics and management policies in the US, Canada, and Australia. My main goal for the future research is to improve the multi-functional efficiency of forests focusing its productivity.


Kyu-Hong Song (’18, 4th year)

My research interest is forest management such as rehabilitation after disturbance and artificial treatment including thinning. Ongoing research project is “Effects of thinning and clear-cutting on soil respiration in forest ecosystems for smart forest management”. So I will research the soil carbon fluxes in various silvicultural treatments going forward.
