Biographical Statement:

Huiju Park is an Associate Professor in the Department of Fiber Science and Apparel Design at Cornell University. He obtained his Ph.D. at Oklahoma State University with an expertise in functional apparel design. Dr. Park has participated in multiple funded multidisciplinary research projects aiming to improve the mobility and thermal comfort of personal protective clothing system including ballistic body armor and firefighters’ bunker gear. He has focused on biomechanic and physiological evaluation of personal protective clothing system and sports apparel by exploring the advantages of the latest human performance simulation and assessment technologies such as motion capture and thermal manikin systems.

 

His professional career as an athletic apparel & footwear manager at PUMA Korea, endowed him with broad knowledge of commercially available ergonomic design features and technologies to improve mobility, comfort & athletic performance.

 

His research and creative designs won numerous awards from international conference and design competitions: 2016 Oklahoma State University College of Human Science Rising Star Award ,2015 ITAA (International Textile and Apparel Association) Rising Star Award, Honorable Mention in 2014 P3 Design Award (Environmental Protection Agency), 2012 Oklahoma State University Graduate Research Excellence Award, Paper of Distinction Award at International Textile and Apparel Association (2012), 2010 Phoenix Award for Oklahoma State University – Outstanding Doctoral Student; 2010  ATEXINC Excellent Marketable Design Award at International Textile and Apparel Association, Second Place at American Quilter’s Society Fashion Design Competition (2009)

 

Research Focus:

Thermal protection and comfort of protective clothing and sportswear

Design and evaluation of auxiliary heating/cooling garment

Mobility of protective clothing and injury risk

Footwear design and evaluation

Smart clothing

 
Teaching and Advising Statement:

My teaching philosophy is to guide students to contribute to the apparel industry, the community, and society through their profession with knowledge, professional skills, creativity and a sound spirit. With this philosophy, I have designed a learning environment in which students can incorporate the latest technologies, technical skills and creative design ideas, while understanding the current issues in the field, from both the industry and the consumer perspectives. My teaching has focused on problem-solving design approaches through hands-on learning experiences in various forms, which, I believe, is an effective way of making students become viable candidates in their future careers.
