Yohan is a research principal specializing in data analytics. He has an interdisciplinary academic background in Industrial Engineering (Georgia Tech, BS/MS 2011) and Business and Technology Management (KAIST, PhD 2015).
Prior to joining the Institute for Sustainable Futures, Yohan was a research professor of Systems Management Engineering at SungKyunKwan University (South Korea). He has managed various government funded projects, including development of an agent based epidemic prevention assessment simulaton. Using MATLAB, CPLEX, and AnyLogic, he processed a large-scale government census data to model the spread of influenza within a statistically accurate synthetic population of an urban Korean city (Suwon). His research findings on effectiveness of various strategies, such as school closures, isolation, and vaccination, have been presented in domstic and international conferences, and was invited to present the findings at a seminar for government epidemic experts.
Yohan has also taught undrgraduate and graduate courses, titled Business Forecasting and Market Analysis and Forecasting of Medical Device Industry, covering a wide range of quantitative analytical methods.

© 2019 The global market based measure (MBM) for international flight emissions is poised for launch in 2020, creating additional pressure for improvements of aviation environmental performance. Due to high R&D costs and long lifecycle of aircrafts, drop-in biofuels stand as a promising solution for addressing aviation's environmental sustainability. The transition to commercial aviation biofuels remains stagnant, however, despite the continuing progress made in overcoming technological and economic challenges of aviation biofuels. This paper investigates the key barriers and opportunities for biofuels transition from a comprehensive socio-technical standpoint. A multi-level perspective (MLP) system dynamics model of aviation biofuel industry is developed to investigate the adoption process. We assess the interactive mechanisms between existing regimes, landscape pressures, and niche innovations, and propose four possible scenarios of aviation biofuel adoption. From this, we provide policy recommendations and industry level strategies for accelerating the transition to aviation biofuels that balance environmental sustainability and economic benefits.
