Dr. Chuloh Jung is a South Korean working as a professor in the Department of Architecture at PMU, KSA. He received his B.S. in Architectural Engineering from Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, in 1994, his M.Arch. from Harvard University in 1997, his M.Des.S. from Harvard University, in 2001, and his Ph.D. from Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, in 2007.

Dr. Chuloh Jung has 24 years of experience teaching, research, and curriculum development at graduate and undergraduate levels. He has developed and taught design studios/urban design studios, sustainable design/environmental design, modern & contemporary architecture, research methodology, and specialized courses in design computation, often integrating my design projects into the curriculum, during his tenure at the American University of Dubai and Ajman University in the United Arab Emirates. His practical design experience includes collaborations with renowned architects like Lord Richard Rogers, Daniel Liebeskind, UN Studio, Zaha Hadid, and Massimiliano Fuksas. His portfolio on Archidaily.com demonstrates a convergence of building culture, technology, sustainability, and innovative design methodologies.

Over the past three academic years, my scholarly endeavors have yielded 41 SCI/SSCI, 10 ESCI papers (39 Scopus Q1 and 2 Scopus Q2), and 15 conference proceedings. His teaching effectiveness is reflected in a high instructor evaluation score of an average of 4.84/5 in the annual faculty evaluation, having supervised 35 thesis projects in the last five years. Additionally, he led the Ajman University Innovation Center, nurturing technology startups aligned with the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Dr. Chuloh Jung hopes to contribute to preparing an outstanding young generation of architects and engineers who will help shape the future of cutting-edge and sustainable architecture in KSA and the region and collaborate to establish a more preeminent College of Architecture and Design in PMU.
