Hoony Kang

Undergraduate Student Researcher (graduated 2019) — University of California San Diego

Hoony Kang conducted research on avalanching and the predator–prey dynamics involved in drift wave–zonal flow interactions through coupled phase and amplitude equations in the Hasegawa–Mima system.

In 2019, Mr. Kang earned a bachelor's degree in physics at UC San Diego. He has completed advanced coursework in physics and mathematics, as well as digital design. At graduation, Mr. Kang received the Shang-keng Ma Memorial Award. This recognition is presented each year to a graduating physics student who has shown exceptional ability and promise during their UC San Diego undergraduate years.
