I was born in Seoul, Korea. I developed an interest in engineering from my parents, both chemical engineers. Then, I obtained Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology as a part of Class of 2017. During my undergraduate studies, I worked on the microstructure of Perovskite solar cells under Dr. Hamid Garmestani from Material Science and Engineering Department. Also, I worked on polymer composite projects under Dr. Oomman Thomas. I learned basic synthesis of chemicals and developed various characterization skills such AFM, SEM, and XRD. I also worked as a process engineer for two years in Korean Army, where I managed 300,000 gallons of jet oil and a refueling system for Black Hawks.
I am currently working towards my Ph.D. in the Abolhasani Group. My research project is focused on the development of microfluidic platforms for fundamental studies of switchable hydrophobicity solvents.
