About me:

I am a research professor at Seoul National University, department of chemical engineering. Prior to SNU, I was an Assistant Professor at Korea Institute for Advanced Study. I work on a wide range of topics in statistical physics of far-from equilibrium systems.

Research Interests:

I conduct research on various aspects of non-equilibrium statistical physics, particularly yielding transition of dry and wet granular materials, morphology of self-assemblies, (explosive) percolation, and surface growth. To this end, I use a combination of self-developed large scale molecular-dynamics-type simulations and Monte-Carlo schemes. To validate my numerical observations, I use scaling arguments and dimensional analysis. Recetnly, I started to work on biological glasses, vesicles, and active filaments.

A brief list of current projects includes:

1) Entropy production in granular materials

2) Mechanisms of negative entropy production in granular flows

3) Symmetric properties of fluctuations in granular flows

4) Active filaments

5) Active turbulence

6) Vesicles

7) Cell division
