Research Associate

School of Physics and Astronomy


I am a research associate in the School of Physics and Astronomy in Cardiff University. My research expertise is in the simulations of topological photonic crystals, elastic waves, and metamaterials.


I studied Materials Science and Engineering (first major) and Physics (second major) at Seoul National University from 2003 and earned my bachelor's degrees in 2007. I then received a PhD degree in Materials Science and Engineering in 2014 from Seoul National University.

After graduation, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher of the Center of Computational Science at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology in Korea until 2018, and as a research professor of the KU-KIST Graduate School of Converging Science and Technology at Korea University in Korea until 2020. I joined the School of Physics and Astronomy at Cardiff University in 2020 as a research associate.

My research interests are topological photonics and mechanical metamaterials. The topological photonics include Weyl photonic crystals and nonreciprocal photonics based on the analyses of topological properties of electromagnetic waves. And the mechanical metamaterials cover simulation of elastic waves and design of active materials based on the continuum mechanics.
