Dr. Somin Park


Somin received her M.S in Chemistry, and Ph.D. in Materials Science Engineering from University of Kentucky, in 2020, under the supervision of Prof. Kenneth Graham. Her previous research in Korea was organic material synthesis for optoelectronic applications, and her Ph.D. work was mainly on interface energetics studies of perovskite materials by using photoelectron spectroscopies. Somin joined Sargent group as a postdoctoral fellow in early 2021. Her current research focuses on molecular engineering and surface modification for different optoelectronic devices to understand degradation mechanisms and improve their stability.
