Byungwoo Park was born in 1958 in Seoul, South Korea. He received his Ph.D. degree in applied physics from Harvard University in 1989. Between 1989–1991, he joined the Physical Sciences Department of IBM T. J. Watson Research Center as a Postdoctor. In 1992, he was appointed as an Assistant Professor of materials science and engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology. He moved in 1997 to the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Seoul National University. So far, he has supervised 13 Ph.D. theses at the Seoul National University. In addition, since 2005, he has been the Editor of Current Applied Physics. His research is focused on the in-depth investigations of desired electromaterial properties with controlled nanostructures. The goal is to synthesize high-performance and high-stability novel materials for the advanced electronic and energy technology. Current topics include the development of nanoscale coating, novel nanocomposites, photoluminescence of nanomaterials, thin-film electrodes with nanophase control, and the growth kinetics of nanostructures. He aims to identify the mechanisms of nanostructures on various physical and chemical properties.
