I am a Rising Star Fellow at Institute for Compound Semiconductors. I have been working in the field of metamaterials, plasmonics, semiconductor lasers and topological photonics. I am interested in analytical and numerical modelling of electromagnetism which requires an appropriate description of the light-matter interactions. My current main research interest is on implemeting photonic topological Iisulator lasers using the III-V semiconductor nanowire growth technology.

Sang Soon Oh received a PhD degree in Physics from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in South Korea (2007). During his PhD course, he visited University of St. Andrews in Scotland (2004-2005). After a post-doctoral fellowship at Electronics Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) in South Korea (2007-2010), he joined the Department of Physics at University of Surrey, UK as a postdoc (2010) and moved to the Condensed Matter Theory (CMTH) Group in the Department of Physics and Optical Semiconductor Device (OSD) Group in Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department at Imperial College London. In 2017, he joined the Institute for Compound Semiconductors at Cardiff University as a Rising Star Fellow.

My research interest is on analytical and numerical modelling of Chiral metamaterials, Active metamaterials and Graphene metamaterials. Recent interest includes Topological Photonics and Semiconductor Lasers.
