Dr. Yong Cho, MSCE ’97, has returned to CEE as an associate professor. Cho comes to Georgia Tech most recently from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, where he taught construction engineering, construction management, and architectural engineering after earning his doctorate at the University of Texas in 2000. A 2011 recipient of the NSF Early Career Award, his research interests include building energy, construction automation, and transportation. He is leading the development of a new paradigm in these research areas by challenging the current understanding of science/engineering technologies in construction and sustainable built environments. Among the challenges he is investigating are robotizing several critical construction and maintenance tasks; and developing sustainable energy improvement methods in the built environment.
