Yukwon Jeon

Postdoctoral researcher 2015 – Present

Dr. Yukwon Jeon received his Ph.D. (combined with M.S. course) in Feb. 2015 from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Yonsei University, South Korea. During his doctoral studies, he has focused on the development of advanced materials for petrochemical catalytic processes (Hydrocarbon reforming, oxidation and separation, etc.) and energy conversion systems (PEMFC and SOFC). He joined in the research group of Prof. John T. S. Irvine, University of St. Andrews in Sep. 2015 as a visiting Postdoctoral Fellow. His research interests are mainly based on design of novel materials for several catalytic applications, such as automotive emission control or hydrogen production through various reforming systems.
