Dr. Chang-Hwan Choi is a Full Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Stevens Institute of Technology in US. Dr. Choi received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2006, specializing in MEMS/Nanotechnology and minoring in Fluid Mechanics and Biomedical Engineering. He earned his MS in Fluids, Thermal, and Chemical Processes from Brown University in 2002. Before he moved to US, he acquired his BS (1995) and MS (1997) in Aerospace Engineering from Seoul National University in Korea. He was a visiting professor at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), and Technische Universität Darmstadt for 2016-2017. He worked as a researcher at Korea Aerospace Research Institute for 1997-2000. He is a recipient of the 2010 Young Investigator Program (YIP) award by the US Office of Naval Research (ONR). In 2015, he was awarded the Humboldt Research Fellowship for Experienced Researchers by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. He is a founder and organizer of the International Conference of Nature-Inspired Surface Engineering (NISE). He has served as an Editorial Board member for several journals including Droplet, International Journal of Wettability Science and Technology, Micromachines, and Scientific Reports. He is also currently serving as an Advisory Board member for the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science.

Dr. Nam is an associate professor in the mechanical engineering department at the KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology). Before joining the KAIST, he worked as an associate and assistant professor at the Kyung Hee University after finishing his postdoctoral research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Los Angeles in 2010, and M.S. and B.S. from the Seoul National University. His research interests include understanding micro/nanoscale heat and mass transport phenomena, developing novel nanosurfaces, and combining them together to introduce advanced solutions in heat transfer enhancement, thermal conversion, and thermal management. He is the recipient of the LG Yonam Foundation international scholar award (2018), Kyung Hee outstanding research award (2017), and KSME Young thermal scientist award (2015).
