  • PhD degree in Physics at University of Oslo, Norway.
  • MSc degree in Material Sciences at Changwon University, South Korea.

Academic Interests

I am an experimentalist in electron microscopy. My research focuses on structural characterization of materials at the atomic scale by combining different analytical techniques, such as high resolution TEM and STEM imaging, electron diffraction, EELS and EDS analysis. I work on a variety of materials systems from metals, semiconductors, complex oxides to catalysts, minerals, cells and tissues.

Job description

My major responsibilities are providing technical and scientific support and training of students, researchers and visitors in performing analyses/experiments using advanced electron microscopy; developing, installing, implementing, maintenance and protection of the TEM infrastructure. I’m also responsible for initiating and developing long term competence in a wide range of advanced TEM techniques in the Structure Physics group.
