Hee Jung Park received his B.S. degrees in materials science-engineering and chemical engineering from Hanyang University (2000) and his Ph.D. (2005) in materials science and engineering from POSTECH (Advisor: Prof. Gyeong Man Choi). His dissertation efforts focused on investigation of the oxygen-ion and electron transport in advanced ceramic materials and on evaluating the suitability of those materials for electrochemical applications such as solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) electrode and gas separation membrane reactors. After the completion of his Ph.D., he joined Prof. S. Kim research group at dep. of chemical engineering and materials science, University of California, Davis in California, USA (2005-2007) as a postdoc. During his two-years, his research was devoted to understanding in fundamentals of the interfacial ionic and electronic conducting properties in nanostructured functional oxides such as solid electrolytes (ceria, zirconia, lanthanum-gallate and barium-zirconate). After the position, he conducted researches at Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) in Korea (2007-2015). His research projects were the development of the solid electrolyte and electrode materials for SOFCs and transparent conducting electrode materials (TCE) for touch-screen panels. He was appointed to Department of Advanced Materials and Engineering at University of Daejeon in 2015 and, four years later, moved to Dep. of Materials Science and Engineering at Unveristy of Dankook in 2019. Prof. Hee Jung Park’s current research centers on mass and charge transport in protonic (proton-ions) and mixed conducting oxides that forms the basis of applications such as SOFCs, gas sensors, and secondary batteries. And he also devotes to the development of advanced functional 2D (2-dimensional) nanomaterials for transparent conducting electrodes, capacitors and chemical sensors.
