Dr. Yong Ryun Kim
Dr Yong Ryun Kim was awarded his Meng and PhD degree from the department of material science and engineering at Imperial College London, UK, under the supervision of Professor Sandrine Heutz and Mary Ryan. During his PhD, his thesis involved the film analysis and fabrication of metal oxide films using vacuum processing. After obtaining his PhD degree, he joined the OSPL group at GIST, Korea, as a post-doctoral researcher for 3.5 years from the winter of 2017. His research project was focused on the fabrication of solution processed highly stable and efficient perovskite (p-i-n and n-i-p structure using single and mixed cations) and organic solar cells (fullerene and non-fullerene based) from small to large scale devices. He has an in-depth experience in fabricating good, high quality devices.
In the Spring of 2021, Ryun relocated to Swansea and has joined the Sêr Sam group as a post-doctoral researcher. His research focuses on device engineering and physics of next-generation electronics, especially perovskite, organic solar cells, LED and photodetectors.
In his free time, he likes to go hiking, shopping, playing football and cooking.
