Activities August 4, 2016

UNIST ECE graduate students, Younghyun Lim (right) and Seojin Choi (left) (Advisor: Prof. Jaehyouk Choi), have been selected as recipients of a 2016 Global Ph.D. Fellowship Program (GPF).

Launched in 2011, the GPF is the most competitive nationwide fellowship program provided by the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF) to recognize and support talented graduate students who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees.

Younghyun’s and Seojin’s research proposals are entitled “High-efficiency and small-area power management IC (PMIC) for next-generation mobile devices” and “Ultra-low noise passive-device-less clock generation ICs for low-cost omnipresent Internet of everything (IoE) sensors”, respectively.

In this year, the NRF selected 218 students from 1,561 nationwide applicants, and UNIST produced 17 awardees.
