I have completed Bachelor in Pharmacy (2007) from University of Development Alternative, and MSc in Chemical & Biological Engineering (2011) and PhD in Bioengineering (2014) from Korea National University of Transportation. I was actively engaged on nanotechnology and nanotoxicology projects. I have completed my first postdoc at Chungnam National University prior to joining at Tufts Medical Center in 2017. I have participated with numerous projects on nanomedicine, biomedical imaging, and photomedicine along with various fields of chemistry and polymers research and development where I have deeply and actively performed in formulation preparation, physical and chemical characterization, in vitro visibility studies in different cell lines and finally studied with in vivo models for understanding their toxicological impact in biological systems. Additionally, I have trained and experienced of broad research fields across materials synthesis (2D, semiconductor QD, AuNPs, SPIONs, graphene, polymers), fabrication, characterization and their application in delivery system such as oral, IV, and SC.
