Prof. Seokwoo Jeon is Chair professor of Materials Science & Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea. His research goals are exploring novel electronic, mechanical, and optical properties from those nanomaterials and employing those materials in real world application. Currently his research focuses on synthesis and applications of low dimensional materials including graphene, carbon nanotubes, BN, and MoS2, and fabrication of 3D nanostructures using various metallic or ceramic materials and applications.
He has produced more than 100 publications and 70 patents in his research fields. He has been a board member of numerous academic societies, and a session organizer or organizing committee of international conferences such as ICCM, ACCM, and MRS. Presidential early-career scientist award from the Korean Academy of Science and Technology (KAST) represents his numerous academic awards and honors in recent years. In 2017, he has appointed as a founding member of the Young Korean Academy of Science and Technology (Y-KAST) and become a director of Advanced MEMS GC Center for Drug Detection.
