Dr. Jeong is an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago's Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering and a director of the Human-in-Mind Engineering Research (HiMER) Lab. He is also an affiliated faculty in the Richard and Loan Hill Department of Biomedical Engineering, a member of the UIC Center for Healthy Work Research Network, and a member of the UIC Honors College Faculty Fellows.

His primary research focuses on supporting human decision-making in interactions with autonomous and intelligent systems. He seeks to apply multiple engineering methodologies (e.g., experimental, human performance modeling, and data analytics & visualization) to addressing societal problems in human-system engineering domains including transportation, robotics, healthcare, and emerging technologies (e.g., augmented/virtual reality, artificial intelligence). Prior to joining UIC, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Human Factors Group of the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI). He received his Ph.D. and M.S.E. in Industrial and Operations Engineering from the University of Michigan.
