Professor Urs von Gunten's visit to WTQL
- Professor Urs von Gunten's visit to WTQLJanuary 03, 2017 WQTL 2014 Spring April Event,Professor Urs von Gunten's visit to WTQLProf. Urs von Gunten visited Korea for about a week. He is a professor in EPFL and a senior research scientist in EAWAG, Switzerland and a leading scientist in the areas of water quality and treatment. The first visit was to our school (SESE) and laboratory (WQTL). He stayed in GIST from April 8th - 10th 2014 to give a talk about "Management of micro-pollutants in the urban water cycle: The Swiss approach" in SESE Seminar event organized by Yunho Lee. Alongside this event, we availed opportunity to meet and greet Professor Urs von Gunten during his stay in GIST, include visiting some Korean traditional village and also share knowledge time in some individual research discussion with some SESE student. In addition, WQTL-GIST in collaboration with BK21 and several top University in Korea organized an event on Friday, April 11th, 2014, "Advance Oxidation Water Workshop" that was held in SNU, Seoul. In this workshop, we could listen several pioneer speaker of this field start with: Prof Urs von Gunten as main speaker given a lecture with titled "Oxidation processes in water treatment: options and limitations for micropollutant elimination". Last but not least, WQTL deeply gratitude and thankful for Prof. Urs von Gunten's kindly time, guidance and willingness to share his knowledge by coming to Korea. It is an honor for WQTL being chosen to organize Prof. Urs von Gunten's visit to GIST which is known as pioneer Professor in water research field also belong one of best world class Water research institute, EAWAG, Switzerland.By Leshya (WQTL)

Workshop with Professor von Gunten from Eawag
- Workshop with Professor von Gunten from EawagJanuary 03, 2017Last week, from the 8th to 11th of April 2014, we had the opportunity to meet with Professor Urs von Gunten. Prof von Gunten is currently the head of Competence Center for Drinking Water in Eawag and a full professor at Ecole Polytechnique F?d?rale de Lausanne (EPEL). He was also the advisor of Prof Yunho Lee when he did a postdoc in Eawag.During his brief stay in Gwangju, Prof von Gunten held individual discussions with some students, visited 낙안읍성in Suncheon, and gave lectures in GIST and Seoul National University (SNU).For the individual discussion, students had the chance to ask or consult to Prof von Gunten about their research topics. Meanwhile in 낙안읍성, Prof von Gunten had a glance on how was the traditional life in Korea hundred years ago, which comprises of korean old government system, traditional houses, and daily lifestyle.As for the lectures in both GIST and SNU, Prof von Gunten mainly talked about oxidation processes in water treatment for micropollutants elimination, especially on how the approach is being practised in Switzerland. He briefly explained about micropollutant problem in urban water management and how it is being assessed in other countries. In addition, he also described the application of oxidants in water treatment for elimination of micropollutants, which include the role of kinetics in the oxidation efficiency, the formation of oxidation by- products (transformation products) and degradation products, advanced oxidation process (AOP), and biological effects after oxidative treatment.Overall it was an enjoyable and resourceful moment with Prof von Gunten. ^_^

Happy graduation for WQTL's second generation
- Happy graduation for WQTL's second generationJanuary 03, 2017 On the 25th February 2014, GIST held graduation ceremonies to award degrees to their doctoral, master, and bachelor graduates. This semester, WQTL residents receiving graduate degrees include: Eunjin Huh, Hayjoong Chung, and Jihye Park. It has been great pleasure for the WQTL members to be able to work with them, even to the point that we have become more than just colleagues. Among the three graduates, only Hayjoong decided to stay as a researcher to collect few more data for her experiment. We sincerely congratulate Eunjin, Hayjoong, and Jihye for succesfully completing their study. We wish them the best of luck for their future career.
