IYC Interests:Increase the public appreciation and understanding of chemistry
Encourage interest of young people in chemistry
Generate enthusiasm for the creative future of chemistry
My research focus is on first-principles investigations of the chemistry and physics of modern materials. First-principles electronic structure calculations are used in conjunction with high performance computing to probe chemical reactions at interfaces and explore the energetics, atomic, electronic, and magnetic properties of solid-state chemical systems.
I believe and hope that IYC2011 can be a platform and a sounding-board for promoting chemistry and chemistry-related disciplines in Korea via the English medium. Being a foreign faculty in this foreign land, I hope this international event will provide a gateway to promote globalization in science here in Korea.
