Prof Moon received his Ph.D. degree in Industrial Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University in 2008, his M.S. and B.S. degrees in Industrial Engineering from Hanyang University, South Korea, in 1995 and 1992, respectively. He worked as a Senior Research Engineer at the Hyundai Motor Company, South Korea for eight years before embarking on his PhD degree. After completing his doctoral degree, he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas A&M University for one year as a postdoctoral research associate. Prior to joining MAE, he served as a Research Associate of Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University between October 2009 and March 2011.
He is interested in the boundary-spanning research that integrates the knowledge of design, engineering, and economics. His current focuses include applying sciences and economic theory to the design of customized and sustainable products, services and systems, strategic and multidisciplinary design optimization, data mining, advanced modeling and simulation, design for additive manufacturing/3D printing, embedded sensor design for 3D Printing, digital twins, smart factory, and redesign and remanufacturing for green technologies.
  • Customized Design and 3D Printing Process Optimization for Electric Vehicles
  • Demonstration of an intelligent DED system for reducing process time
  • Development of AI-based high carbon steel alloy design and sintering-based additive manufacturing technology for high-speed production of powertrain components in the next-generation mobility
  • Module based Reconfigurable Cell Production System Design for Autonomous Mobile Robots using Digital Twins
