Profile:  Dr. Pyun received a B.A. from Northwestern University in 1997.  He received his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University in 2002.  He was a Postdoctoral Fellow from 2002 to 2004 at the IBM Almaden Research Center at UC Berkeley.  Dr. Pyun focused on the synthesis and characterization of novel polymeric and composite materials, with an emphasis on the control of nanoscale structure. Recent developments in polymer and colloid chemistry offer the synthetic chemist a wide range of tools to prepare well-defined, highly functional building blocks. We seek to synthesize complex materials from a "bottom up" approach via the organization of molecules, polymers and nanoparticles into ordered assemblies.
