About Professor

Prof. Min Hyung Lee is an associate professor of Kyung Hee University, and he is an editorial board member of J. of Controlled Release (IF 7.877). Prof. Lee holds PhD degree in Material Chemistry from Northwestern University, USA (Top rank in Nanoscience and Nanotech.) under advice of Prof. Teri W. Odom. During PhD course, he focused on developing new nanofabrication techniques to fabricate large-area nanoscale plasmonic crystals, and investigated optical properties of the plasmonic crystals. After finishing PhD programs, he performed post-doctoral researches in University California at Berkeley and Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP), USA with Prof. Ali Javey and Dr. Joel Ager. During the post-doctoral training, he developed III-V semiconductor-based nanoscale devices including thin film MOSFETs, photovoltaics, and PEC water splitting electrodes. After he joined to Kyung Hee University as a faculty, his research has focused on application of nanostructures in plasmonics, solar-to-fuel conversion, and nanogenerators.
