Yo Han Kwon


Yo Han Kwon is a 4th year graduate student in the Reichmanis Research Group in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Tech. He will focus on the study of hybrid nanocomposites for flexible, light-weight battery electrodes.

Yo Han was born in Seoul, South Korea. He received B.S. degree in Molecular System Engineering (Polymer Engineering) from Hanyang University in 2007 and M.S. degree in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from KAIST in 2009. His research topic at KAIST was controlling the phase separation of polymer blends and preparing semi-interpenetrating polymer networks (semi-IPNs) for DMFC membranes with a nanoscale water-channel structure. After graduation from KAIST, he had worked in Battery R&D at LG Chem (South Korea) for 5years, participating in the several projects for developing advanced battery materials and a new battery system having three-dimensional flexibility.
