I graduated from Seoul National University, (B.S.-2005 and Ph.D.-2012), South Korea. After working at Korea Institute of Science and Technology as a post-doc, I've joined this group in May 2013. The most important tool in my research is a computer simulation, so called Finite Element Method. In the field of materials science, I apply this tool to analyze various nano-/micro-structured materials, focusing on the mechanics with related functionalities.
I received my B.S. degree (2006) in Polymer Science and Engineering from Sungkyunkwan university and M.S. (2008) and Ph. D. degree (2012) in Chemical and Biological Engineering from Seoul National University under the supervision of Prof. Kookheon Char.
After working as a postdoctoral researcher in Seoul National University (2012-2013) and Georgia Institute of Technology (2013-2014), I joined the Yang group in February 2014. The main research topics are the preparation of polymeric nanostructures based on the cylindrical nanoporous templates and realizing functional polymer thin films and modulating their surface/interface properties.
I received my B. S (2005), M.S. (2007) and Ph.D degree (2011) in Materials Science and Engineering from the Centre for Composite Materials and Structure in Harbin Institute of Technology, China. I joined Prof. Yang’s group in May 2012 to create responsive materials from colloidal assembly and elastic instability, and investigate their hydrophobic and electrical properties.
I received my B.S. degree in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (2011), and M.S. degree (2012) from Sogang University. I work on controlling structure of soft material and its surface characteristics, which can be a useful tool in the design of well-ordered structures. I am interested in liquid crystal elastomers (patterning into pillars and porous membranes) and patterning topological defects.
I received my B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2009, where I subsequently worked on morpohological studies of biomineralized exoskeletal systems. I recently joined the group to work on designing and fabricating active soft materials that will interface with human cells in a 4-D setting (spatially and temporally). The insights as to how cells can modify their immediate microenvironment with minimal energy and maximal effect will lead to the biomimetic design and engineering of highly aesthetic, passive materials for creating responsive building skins at the architectural scale.
I graduated from Purdue University with a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering in 2014. I then joined the group and am co-advised by Dr. Daeyeon Lee in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. My research interest is wastewater treatment using nanostructured membranes.
I received my B.S. and Master's degree from the University of Parma (Italy) and my Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge (UK) in 2010. From 2010 to 2013 I was a post-doc at the University of Milan. My research interests have spanned from photosensitive materials to liquid crystal polymers and elastomers, liquid crystals confined in porous media and topological defects.
I am now working also with Prof. Randall Kamien (Dept. Physics) and Prof. Kathleen Stebe (School of Engineering).
I received B.S. degree in Material Chemsistry program from University of Toronto, 2010. I currently research on soft materials and their directed assembly, instability and folding.
I received my B.S. and Master degree from Tsinghua University, China, majoring in Polymer Science. For my PhD research, I mainly focus on design, synthesis and fabrication of polymer microstructures and study cell responses to various geometic patterns and elasticity of the substrates.
I received my B.S. degree (2000) and M.S. degree (2003) in Polymer Science and Engineering from Sichuan university and Ph. D. degree (2006) in Polymer Physics and Chemistry from Nanjing University. I joined Soochow University at 2006. I worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Hong Kong Polytechnic University (2008-2010). Now, I am an associated professor of Soochow University. I joined the Yang group in February 2015 as a visiting scholar.
The main research topics are to sythesize polymer modified nanoparticles and polymeric nanoparticles and study their self-assembly for angle-independent structural colors.
