Dr. Juho Lee and his advisor Professor Yong-Hoon Kim were awarded the Grand Prize for the IT field at 11th S-Oil Best Paper Awards which is funded by the S-Oil Science and Culture Foundation (chairman Baek Woon Kyu, founded by CEO Hussain A. Al-Qahtani) on December 2nd at the auditorium at S-Oil Headquarters.
The S-Oil Best Paper Awards is created by The Korean Academy of Science and Technology (https://kast.or.kr) on the purpose pf nurturing young scientists in the basic science and engineering fields and encourage 21st century scientis leaders from 2011.
During the award ceremony, a total of 10 young scientists and their advisors in 5 fields were awarded 115 million KRW as research funding, and 5 next generation scientists were awarded 200 million KRW as research funding .
Dr. Juho Lee’s work on a novel quantum mechanical nano-device simulation and theory (title of the paper: First-principles Calculation of Electric Enthalpy at Voltage-Applied Electrochemical Interfaces) was recognized.
Meanwhile, the research related to Dr. Juho Lee and Prof. Yong-Hoon Kim was recently selected as one of the two best papers at the 2021 Korean Semiconductor Conference (KCS 2021).
