Jooyoung Hong is an Assistant Professor in Architecture and Sustainable Design at the Singapore University of Technology and Design. His umbrella research area of interest is in soundscape. Soundscape, the acoustic analogy to landscape, is a new paradigm by emphasizing a holistic perspective of the perceived acoustic environments in a given context. He has investigated relationships between physical acoustic phenomena and human perception in the indoor and outdoor environment through multidisciplinary approaches from acoustics, psychology, architecture and urban planning.

Jooyoung received his B.Sc and Ph.D. in Architectural Environmental Engineering from Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea in 2010 and 2015, respectively. He was invited as one of the Korean participants to the Global Young Scientist Summit @one-north 2015, Singapore. In 2017, he was a recipient of the prestigious Lee Kuan Yew Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
