Hang Bok Choi received the B.S. degree and the M.S. degree in nuclear engineering from Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea, 1983 and 1985, respectively. He also received the Ph.D. degree (nuclear engineering) and the Postdoc degree from Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind, USA, in 1992 and 1993, respectively. He is a Member of the American Nuclear Society and the Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association since 2007. He is a Senior Engineer for gas-cooled reactor physics design, reactor system design, fuel cycle analysis, and radioisotope production at General Atomics, San Diego, Calif, USA (since 2007). He also used to work at Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute as a Principal Researcher for advanced fuel cycle system technology development (2007), Manager for DUPIC fuel cycle development and reactor physics analysis code development (1997–2007), Senior Researcher for CANDU reactor physics for recycling PWR spent fuels (1994–1997), Researcher for multipurpose research reactor (HANARO) design and analysis (1986–1988), and Researcher for CANDU-PHWR physics analysis (1983–1985). In addition, he worked for Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, Canada (1994-1995), as an Attached Engineer for physics model development of a CANDU reactor for recycling PWR spent fuels. He also worked for CEA/Cadarache, France (2001-2002), as a Research Engineer for gas-cooled fast reactor design, fuel cycle analyses, and computational algorithm development.
