Korean to teach at Cambridge

Heo Yeon-sook
Chung-Ang University (CAU) said Monday that Heo Yeon-sook, a CAU alumnus, was appointed architectural engineering professor at the University of Cambridge. She will begin teaching next month.

"I will teach in Cambridge with the sense of pride in my alma mater in my heart," she said.

Heo graduated from CAU in 2002, and worked at an architectural firm for two years before earning her master's and doctorate degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

She has previously served as a visiting research assistant at the Energy Efficient Cities Initiative organized by the University of Cambridge.

She also worked as a postdoctoral appointee at the U.S. Argonne National Laboratory while she was at the British University of Cambridge.

Heo was also conferred the Outstanding Young Contributor award at the International Building Performance Simulation Conference in August.
