    Young Jae Jang received his Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2007 and a double M.S. degree in mechanical engineering and operations research from MIT in 2001. He received a B.S degree in aerospace engineering from Boston University in 1997. He is currently an assistant professor in the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), South Korea. He is also affiliated with the Cho Chun Shik Graduate School of Green Transportation at KAIST.

    His current research includes the stochastic modeling of complex systems and optimizations in transportation and AMHS systems. He has been involved in the KAIST On‐Line Electric Vehicle (OLEV) project developing and commercializing the innovative wireless charging electric vehicle. The project was recognized as the “50 Best Innovations of 2010″ by TIME Magazine. His role in the project is to develop the optimal energy management system to integrate the vehicle system to the road traffic network. He has been published numerous technical papers out of the OLEV technology. His recent work “The Optimal Economic Design of the Wireless Powered Transportation System” was selected as the Best Paper in the 2013 International Conference on Intelligent Manufacturing and Logistics Conference.

    Dr. Jang is the technical program chair of the 2014 IEEE Vehicular Technology Workshop on Emerging Technologies on Wireless Power and the co‐chair of the International Symposium on Semiconductor Manufacturing Intelligence (ISMI) 2015. He also served as an associate guest editor of the Special Issue of “Wireless Charging Technology” on IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, 2015, and the Special Issue on “Sustainable Urban Transport” on Flexible Services and Manufacturing (FSM) Journal, 2016.
