A total of about 100 IBM Faculty Partnership Awards were given worldwide this year (2000/2001), including all research areas. The description of the
IBM Faculty Partnership Awards states: "Candidates must have an outstanding
reputation for contributions in his or her field(s), or for the case of
junior faculty, show unusual promise."
- Best Teacher Award April, 2002
College of Engineering, Seoul National University
Soo-Mook Moon received his Ph.D at the University of Maryland, College Park, in 1993. During 1992-1993, he worked at IBM Thomas J.
Watson Research Center where he developed the IBM VLIW compiler. During 1993-1994, he was a software design engineer at the
Hewlett-Packard Company in California Language Lab where he contributed to the development of an optimizing compiler for the PA-RISC
CPUs. Since 1994, he has been with the faculty of the Seoul National University in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science where he is now a
full professor. Professor Moon visited IBM T. J. Watson research center as a visiting scientist during the summer of 1997. He was with Sun Microsystems
in 2002-2003 as a visiting professor.
