Prof. Dr. Jaeyoung Lee, vice director of Ertl Center for Electrochemistry and Catalysis in Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) in South Korea, delivered a special lecture series on March 25-26 in Melchor Hall, College of Engineering, as part of the 3rd Engineering Forum Series (Frontiers in Engineering and Innovation 2015).
Prof. Dr. Jaeyoung Lee, renowned for his expertise in the field of fuel cell research and other electrochemical conversion and storage systems, gave a talk on the basics of electrochemistry, thermodynamics, electrode reactions, and water electrolysis. He also shared the development of classical fuel cells and the recent advancements in fuel cells.
The lecture series was attended by more than 50 students, professors, engineers, and science research specialists from the University of the Philippines Diliman (UPD), University of Sto. Tomas (UST), Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU), De La Salle University (DLSU), and the Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (PCIEERD).
Prof. Dr. Jaeyoung Lee also visited the newly established Laboratory of Electrochemical Engineering (LEE), which is named after him, in the department of Chemical Engineering to strengthen the research collaboration between GIST and UPD. He is set to return as a visiting professor in UPD and to give another series of lecture in September of this year.
