Professor Duck-Joo Lee of the Aerospace Engineering Department at KAIST received the achievement award in ARF (Asian-Australian Rotorcraft Forum) 2015. In ARF, companies such as Bell Helicopter and Airbus Helicopter gather and share their technological discoveries.
Professor Lee was elected as Chairman of the first ARF to oversee the organization of its forum as well as exhibitions, and his effort towards advancing rotorcraft was recognized.
Professor Lee said, “I hope that research findings of many scholars will be applied to the domestic air transportation businesses.” He added, “More companies in the field should enter the global market.”
Professor Lee started his career as a researcher in NASA Ames Research Center. He is an expert in the fields of jet engines and aeroacoustics.
