Dr. Jeong Tae (JT) Ok has a diverse background including Mechanical (BS and PhD), Electrical (MS), Electronic (ME), Chemical & Petroleum Engineering (Postdoctoral). He obtained his PhD in the interdepartmental Mechanical and Electrical Engineering programs in Engineering Science at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge (May 2011). His research has been particularly oriented in the geometrical effects on fluid transportation in micro- and nanofluidics. Before joining the Department of Engineering Technology at Shawnee State University, he was Assistant Professor (Mechanical Engineering) at Midwestern State University (MSU Texas) and Teaching Assistant Professor at Wright State University. He was a postdoctoral researcher at Colorado School of Mines where he made significant contributions in the field of petroleum fluids transport within artificial porous media analogs while working on RPSEA (Research Partnership to Secure Energy for America) joint project between Colorado School of Mines and Missouri University of Science and Technology. Dr. Ok has been expanding his research subjects such as computational thermo-fluidics; design and hardware implementation of the apparatus for the application of biology, petroleum, energy, and heat transfer; machine learning with humanoid robot via the undergraduate research and senior design projects.
