About Me

Jung-Hoon Chun is director of the Laboratory for Manufacturing and Productivity and a professor of mechanical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He has been a member of the MIT Mechanical Engineering faculty since 1989, and has over 100 publications and patents to his credit. His research focuses on the development of Innovative Manufacturing Processes. His research areas include droplet-based manufacturing processes, microelectronics manufacturing processes such as chemical-mechanical polishing and polymer-based microfluidic devices manufacturing. One of his patented manufacturing process, the uniform-droplet spray process, has been commercialized worldwide for the production of solder spheres used in electronics packaging. His teaching focuses on these research areas and on management in engineering. Dr. Chun also has experience in many large-scale international collaborations and industry-MIT consortia. He is active in advising and consulting for many for-profit and non-profit organizations worldwide, in technical as well as policy areas. Dr. Chun received a B.S. from Seoul National University, an M.A.Sc. from the University of Ottawa, and a Ph.D. from MIT, all in mechanical engineering.
