Research Interests

Dr. Kwon’s research focuses on the development of techniques for the modeling, simulation, and control of multiscale processes which are characterized by highly coupled phenomena occurring at disparate spatial and temporal scales. Specifically, Dr. Kwon is applying these techniques to crystallization, chemical vapor deposition, and hydraulic fracturing processes leading to new insights and addressing industrial concerns.
