South Korea (Fulbright S&T awardee 2012)
Hyoungwon Park is pursuing doctoral studies in Materials Science and Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research focuses on energy materials, particularly applying nano materials to the photovoltaic. The goal of Hyoungwon’s research is to understand the physical properties of various compound semiconductor nanowires and use them to develop next-generation solar cell.
Hyoungwon is from South Korea and received both bachelor’s and master’s degree at Korea University in Materials Science and Engineering. During his master’s, he studied physical properties of patterned nanostructured metal-oxide materials and their applications to the optoelectronic devices. During his master’s, he had authored 14 papers and gave a number of presentations in several well-known international conferences.
