I’m a second year Chemistry graduate student joint with Professor Van Duyne and Professor Schatz. I’m from Gwangju, South Korea, and I earned my B.S. in Chemistry from KAIST, South Korea. As an undergraduate, I developed SERS biosensors using gold nano platforms such as nano particles, wires, and plates for one year. I also studied synthesis mechanisms of graphene-based materials with theoretical backgrounds such as DFT and MD for a year. My current research interests focus on studying electronic and chemical characteristics of molecules using tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS). I enjoy playing or watching baseball and tennis in my spare time.
