Professor Hoon Sung Chwa Appointed


As of August 6, Professor Hoon Sung Chwa joined us in the Department of Information and Communication Engineering at DGIST.


Professor Chwa received the BS, MS, and PhD degrees from KAIST, Daejeon, Korea, all in Computer Science, in 2009, 2011, and 2016, respectively. His PhD thesis deals with the topic of advancing multi-core scheduling for real-time embedded systems. Prior to joining DGIST, he worked as a research fellow at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA, from October 2016 to July 2018.


His research interests include system design and analysis with timing guarantees and resource management in real-time embedded systems and cyber-physical systems. He published more than 15 international journals/conferences, including top conferences in the field of real-time systems (e.g., IEEE RTSS, IEEE RTAS, ACM EMSOFT, etc). He won two best paper awards from the 33rd IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium (RTSS) in 2012 and from the IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems, Networks, and Applications (CPSNA) in 2014.
