My research interest is a novel catalyst design from density functional theory calculations and machine learning. During my PhD at KAIST, I worked on nanoparticle and single atom catalysts for CO2 reduction. After my PhD, I joined Stanford as a postdoctoral researcher where I focused on the design of active and selective catalysts for O2 reduction and H2O oxidation. My research goal at Prof. Ulissi’s group is to apply machine learning techniques to exhaustively search a broad chemical space to develop groundbreaking catalysts.
