Dr. Chung Il Park (Postdoctoral Researcher, Mechanical Science and Engineering)
I joined the Wave Propagation and Metamaterials Lab in March 2023 after completing my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Seoul National University. During my M.S.-Ph.D. combined degree, I worked on the development of an ultrasound nondestructive sensor/actuator for plate structures and opened new techniques on impedance- and phase-matched anti-reflection layer for extraordinary transmission through a barrier for ultrasonic applications. I’m currently focused on passive flow control for instability mitigation using phononic crystals and metamaterials by combining wave engineering with band structure modulation and flow control. Besides the research, I enjoy playing badminton, driving a car, taking a sauna and bath, and traveling.
