Dr. Yoonjin Yoon is currently a professor at the faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST).

Her research focus is applications of computational and information sciences to transportation system. Some of her work has dealt with air traffic flow management in NextGen, transportation data analytics, and Cybernatics. One of her most recent efforts involve the UAV traffic management both in the low altitude and controlled airspace. Since joining KAIST in 2011, she has been actively serving on international aviation organizations, including ICAO and ISO as national delegate. She received B.S. in Mathematics from Seoul National University, dual M.S. degrees in Computer Science, and Management Science and Engineering from Stanford University. She received her Ph.D. from University of California, Berkeley
