Dr. Hyun Seung Jung


Hyun Seung Jung obtained B.S. and Ph.D. degrees at the School of Chemical Engineering, Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU), under the supervision of Prof. Jong Wook Bae. Hyun Seung joined the Sargent group as a postdoctoral fellow in September 2023. He designed various metal oxide, zeolite, and metal-organic framework (MOF) catalysts for gas-phase thermal catalysis, including CO/CO2 hydrogenation, dimethyl ether carbonylation, and methyl acetate (MA) hydrogenation for indirect ethanol production using fixed-bed and fluidized-bed reactors. His current research topics in the Sargent group include the development of catalysts for the electrochemical process, electrified CO2 capture, and the combination of thermal-electrocatalysis systems to maximize process efficiency.
