Academic Training:

My academic training in Physical Chemistry started at Seoul National University in Seoul, Korea where I was an undergraduate student. As a part of my training, I performed a senior thesis research on the topic of surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy of metallic nanoparticles under the guidance of Prof. J. S. Suh. After getting a B. S. degree, I came to US and started a Ph. D. program in Physical Chemistry at the University of Chicago in Chicago, IL. During my doctoral training with Prof. Steven J. Sibener, my research centered on the development of new scanning probe techniques and their application to various systems including diblock copolymers, metallic surfaces, and bacterial cells. I then carried out postdoctoral research with Prof. Charles M. Lieber in the Department of Chemistry at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. My postdoctoral research focused on the detection of polymorphisms and mutations in human genes using single-walled carbon nanotubes and boron-doped silicon nanowires. I began an independent research and teaching career as an assistant professor in the Chemical Engineering Department at the Pennsylvania State University in University Park, PA. In Aug. 2010, I moved to Washington, DC where I am currently serving as a Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Georgetown University. My research has been targeting the multidisciplinary areas of nanosciences and materials chemistry.
