Professor Cho has authored/co-authored approximately one hundred and fifty papers in the area of heat transfer, fluid mechanics, rheology, aerodynamics, acoustics, combustion and energy. He is a reviewer for ASME Applied Mechanics Reviews, J. of Heat Transfer, International Journal of the Heat and Mass Transfer, AIChE Journal, J. of Biomechanics, J of Biomechanical Eng., AIAA, and Chemical Engineering Communications. He is an editor for Handbook of Heat Transfer (McGraw Hill, 3rd ed.) and Heat Transfer-Asian Research (Wiley), and the Advances in Heat Transfer (Academic Press).
Prior to joining Drexel University, he spent four years at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, as a Member of the Technical Staff. At JPL he was involved in a number of experimental and analytical investigations in the field of heat transfer, fluid mechanics, acoustics and energy. Included was the development of an acoustic steam flow meter for the Department of Energy (Office of Industrial Program) and a study of aircraft cabin fire during crash landing for FAA.
