Research performed at Stevens as part of the YIP program along with an additional DARPA grant will be supported by the "Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP)." Dr. Choi was awarded DURIP funding for a new state-of-the-art physical vapor deposition system that facilitates thin film growth, deposition, and prototyping which enable production of anti-corrosion materials.
"ONR's recognition of Dr. Choi's exceptional research and promising future is an indication of the growing impact that Stevens is having in the world of multi-scale engineering. We are especially proud of his achievements and are honored to see the ever-growing number of faculty distinctions within the Institute." - Dr. Constantin Chassapis, Deputy Dean, School of Engineering & Science and Department Director, Mechanical Engineering
The winners of the YIP award were chosen based on "a comprehensive evaluation that includes the applicant's past performance, a creative research proposal and a long-term commitment from the recipient's university."
With more than 200 applicants, Dr. Choi is one of 17 researchers from prestigious universities across the country to receive this award and Stevens congratulates his outstanding accomplishments.
About the Young Investigator Program
YIP winners must have earned a doctorate or equivalent degree within the past five years and show exceptional promise for conducting innovative research. Started in 1985, the program seeks to attract outstanding professors at higher education institutions to the Department of the Navy's research program, support their research and encourage their teaching and research careers.
"We support these researchers with the hope that they will bec
