Dr. Jhang is a professor in the department of English language and literature at the Korea Maritime and Ocean University, South Korea's most prestigious national university for maritime study, transportation science and engineering.

Dr. Jhang's research is based on corpus linguistics merging with network analysis, especially keyword network analysis and collocation network analysis, which provide a better explanation for linguistic and culture considerations. He believes that understanding Maritime English, as well as maritime culture and research on the related subjects, are very important for maritime industry.

One of the highlights of Dr. Jhang's career has been serving as the president for the Korean Association for Corpus Linguistics and the Korean Association of Language Sciences. He has been the vice president of the Linguistic Society of Korea since 2017 and president of the Busan Corpus Linguistics Research Circle under The Korean Association of Language Sciences since 2012.

Writing extensively, Dr. Jhang has authored several books, recently including "Ocean Topics: Reading" in 2017, "Maritime Industry English" in 2016, and "Maritime English for Cruising Travelers" in 2014. An active editor-in-chief of "Corpus Linguistics Research" and the author and co-author of multiple peer-reviewed journal articles such as the Journal of Language Sciences and the Journal of Linguistic Sciences, his contributions have earned him a Gokcheon Excellent Paper Academic Award and a Young-Am Excellent Paper Academic Award from the Korean Association of Language Sciences in 2014 and 2018, respectively.
