ICT Honors Jonguen Baek

ICT recently had to say goodbye and good luck to Jonguen Baek, who moved back to Korea. He has taken a position as Research Professor at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Sejong University.

Jonguen Baek earned his Ph.D. in Transportation Engineering and was advised by Dr. Al-Qadi. He had been serving as a post-doc researcher at ICT before obtaining his new position, where he will be closer to his family.

Baek also served as a Graduate Research Assistant on two ICT projects including “Thin Quiet Long-Lasting High Friction Surface Layer” and “Cost-Effectiveness and Performance of Overlay Systems in Illinois.”

Baek was a constant fixture at ATREL and will be greatly missed. Everyone at ATREL has been impressed by his work ethic, and he is a genuinely friendly person who cares about others. ICT staff, students, and faculty honored Baek at a recent lunch.
