Professor Doghoon Hyeon (Department of Mathematics) will receive the best paper award given by the Korean Mathematical Society (KMS) with Professor Sung Yeon Kim (Kangwon National University).

KMS announced that they will have a Spring 2014 meeting for reading research papers fromApril 24 to 26 at Gangneung-Wonju National University where Professor Hyeon will receive his award for best paper. 

Professor Hyeon published his paper in Annals of Mathematics, a journal published by Princeton University, in 2013. His paper titled, “Log minimal model program for the moduli space curves: The first flip”, seeks to understand the canonical model of the moduli space of curves. His successful achievement to use the geometric invariants theory to create a moduli space was recognized.

Professor Hyeon received his Ph.D. from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and was a professor at Northern Illinois University and Marshall University. He joined POSTECH as a faculty member in 2009.
