Lee Ji-yun, a professor of aerospace engineering at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), received an achievement award from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, KAIST said Thursday.

She was acknowledged for her contribution to the development of a global position system (GPS) and her technological advances in satellite navigation.

"Satellite navigation has expanded in its uses, and thus its performance and safety is crucial," Lee said.

Her research on low-elevation ionospheric anomalies for ground-based augmentation of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) was published in Radio Science Journal.

Lee received her bachelor's degree from Yonsei University and her master's from Stanford University.

In 2000, she researched at the Stanford GPS laboratory and then received her doctorate from Stanford University's Aeronautics and Astronautics department in 2005.
