Soyeon Park

Postdoctoral Researcher-Chemistry

Soyeon Park is a postdoctoral researcher in the Chemistry and Nanoscience Center at NREL. She is broadly interested in synthesis of low-dimensional inorganic materials, and optoelectronic materials and the surface engineering of those materials for various applications. Her current research interests mainly concentrate on the fabrication of highly efficient and stable perovskite solar cells, and developing the sustainable and closed process loop for perovskite solar cells.

She earned her doctorate in advanced materials science and engineering from Sungkyunkwan University, working under Professor Hyun Suk Jung in 2019. For this doctoral period, she was a visiting researcher in mechanical engineering at Stanford University from 2017 to 2018.
