I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers at Northwestern University (NU-MRSEC). I work with professor Lincoln J. Lauhon to examine novel materials' properties and their device functionalities. My research explores an area where electrical engineering, materials science, and applied physics meet.
I received M.S.E. and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin, with the supervision of professors Deji Akinwande and Jung-Fu Lin. Before that, I received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering at Seoul National University in Seoul, Korea, where I was born and grew up in.
My research interests are related to experimentally exploring emerging low-dimensional materials' properties, and on implementing them into novel devices. I'm currently working on two-dimensional (2D) materials-based heterostructures that perform novel functionalities, such as non-volatility and optical modulation. My Ph.D. work focused on strain engineering 2D materials' properties. My research span a wide range, from fundamental characterization and understanding of materials to device fabrication and measurement.
