I develop and apply the state-of-the-art computational methods to understand essential problems in chemistry, physics, and materials science with a particular emphasis on problems in surface chemistry. I provided important insights for emergent energy materials such as solar cells, light-emitting diodes and catalysis using the high-level quantum mechanical simulations. Theoretical understanding of such energy materials is of great importance for the design and development of efficient energy sources to mitigate climate change and to achieve a green economy. 


I obtained B.S. and M.S. at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) and Ph.D. at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Techlogy (UNIST) under Prof. Kwang S. Kim. After completing Ph.D., I joined Prof. Michele Parrinello's group at ETH Zürich & USI where I had developed bosonic path integral NPT simulation. Now I am a NRF Korea Postdoc Fellow in Angelos' group in Cambridge.
