Professor David Hung, University of Michigan- Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute (UM-SJTU JI) Associate Dean for Graduate Education, has recently been appointed as an Associate Editor of Transactions of the ASME (American Society of MechanicalEngineers), Journal of Engineering for Gas Turbines and Power. He shares the responsibility to oversee the review process of original research papers submitted to the Journal in the area of internal combustion engines. Previously, Professor Hung served on the editorial boards of the Progress in Energy and Combustion Science and Atomization and Sprays.
Founded in 1880, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is an international nonprofit organization of education and technology, with more than 125,000 members worldwide and one of the world’s largest technical publishing organizations. ASME’s publications provide information on cutting-edge technology across disciplines and Journal of Engineering for Gas Turbines and Power is one of the world’s leading journals in this field. The journal regularly publishes top-quality papers covering a wide spectrum of practical subjects, including gas and steam turbine technology, nuclear engineering, internal combustion engines and fossil power generation. The journal papers are included in the SCI and are of high interest to the industry.

Brief Bio of Professor David L.S. Hung:
David HungProfessor David L.S. Hung serves as the Associate Dean for Graduate Education at JI. After earning his doctoral degree in mechanical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, USA, in 1998, he had been working at General Motors, Delphi and Visteon and was an associate professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Michigan State University, conducting research on advanced powertrain systems, gasoline direct injection engine and optical diagnostics. His research projects were funded by the US Department of Energy and other agencies. Professor Hung joined JI in June 2010 with a dual appointment as a professor of the Institute of Automotive Engineering, School of Mechanical Engineering at SJTU. He has published more than 120 papers in archival journals and conference proceedings, including Nature Physics, International Journal of Engine Research, IEEE Transactions of Mechatronics, Fuel, SAE and ASME Transactions. He has been granted 10 US patents. He has received numerous funding from Chinese agencies, including China MOE’s New Century Talent Award, NSFC grants, SJTU Interdisciplinary Research Grant.

At JI, Professor Hung has been teaching senior- and graduate-level courses in automotive engineering, modern engineering measurement and experimental techniques, with emphasis on teamwork and interactive learning. He received the first prize of 2012 SJTU Excellent Teaching Award. His experimental course VM495, as part of the reform and innovation of mechanical engineering training model, won the special prize of 2012 SJTU Teaching Achievement Award as well as the first prize of Teaching Achievement Award from the Shanghai Municipal Government.

Based on his outstanding contributions in fuel injection sprays measurement and his leading role in the development and formulation of the first international standard practice for gasoline fuel injection spray measurements (SAE J2175), Professor Hung was elected as a Fellow of SAE International (Society of Automotive Engineers) in October 2013. In March 2015 he was named a Distinguished Visiting Fellow by the United Kingdom’s Royal Academy of Engineering. He was also named the SJTU’s “Koguan Top Ten Professor” in December 2015.
