Jeong Honored with Teaching Excellence Award

COLLEGE STATION, Texas, March 9, 2010 – Hae-Kwon Jeong, assistant professor in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been named a recipient of the Teaching Excellence Award, issued as part of a voluntary, student-selected honors program of The Texas A&M University System.

The winners represent the top 20 percent of participating faculty members from all 11 campuses of the Texas A&M System. Awards are based on rankings from evaluations created and administered by students, with weighting for factors such as class size, and all faculty members are eligible.

This semester Jeong teaches “advanced nanostructured materials”, which introduces the chemical synthesis and characterization of materials with structures and properties in the nanoscales.

In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Jeong conducts research focusing on the development of novel methodologies to design, modify, deposit and microfabricate nanostructured materials and to build them into hierarchical structures and complex forms for wide ranges of applications including separation membranes, selective catalysts, adsorbents as well as micro systems, fuel cells, bio-separation and micro photonics.
