Woochul Song

Woochul Song received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from School of Chemical Engineering, Sungkyunkwan University from South Korea in 2014 and 2015, respectively. After one year of internship at Korea Institute of Science and Technology, he started Ph.D. study at Penn State in 2016 and moved to the University of Texas at Austin in 2019 following his research advisor Prof. Manish Kumar. In UT Austin, he is being co-advised by Prof. Manish Kumar and Prof. Benny D. Freeman. His research has focused on molecular designs of biomimetic membranes for efficient water filtration, and currently he is trying to translate the molecular transport phenomena in scalable polymer membranes, specifically targeting gas separations. Expecting to have a defense in early/mid 2021, he will start his professional research career as a postdoctoral researcher, applying for tenure track academic position.
