I am a geoscientist whose research focuses on the physics of flow and reactive transport in porous and fractured media. I joined the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Minnesota as an Assistant Professor and a Gibson Chair of Hydrogeology in August 2018. I was a research scientist at Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) and an affiliated researcher in the Subsurface Energy and Mechanics (SEaM) Lab and the Earth Resources Laboratory (ERL) at MIT. I was a postdoctoral associate in the ERL at MIT before joining KIST. I received my MSc (2010) and PhD (2014) in Civil & Environmental Engineering at MIT under Professor Ruben Juanes who is leading SEaM Lab. The title of my PhD thesis is, “Anomalous Transport through Porous and Fractured Media,” and my PhD was generously supported by DOE SCGF program and MIT Martin Fellowship. I obtained BSc of Civil, Urban & Geosystem engineering at Seoul National University with summa cum laude in 2008.
