KSEA is very pleased to announce 2 winners for the 2012 KSEA Young Investigator Grant. Each winner will be awarded $10,000 honorarium and a grant certificate. This year, more than 40 applications from highly qualified researchers and engineers were received. The KSEA Young Investigator Grant was designed to recognize those who have demonstrated the outstanding early career as a young investigator whose achievement in science or technology areas is outstanding within the context of the mission of KSEA. Evaluation and selection was conducted by the KSEA Honors and Awards committee based on review of the submitted application form, technology development plan, reference letters and resume.
For the KSEA Young Investigator Grant, Dr. Lee proposed “A Novel MRI Contrast for Ultra-High Resolution Tractography and Myelin Content Map of Brain.” In this proposal, Dr. Lee has suggested exploring two new MRI methods to advance our understanding of the brain structure and to improve the diagnosis and prognosis of brain diseases and injury.
Dr. Park received the KSEA Young Investigator Grant for the proposal entitled “Theoretical modeling of graphene nanostructures” Dr. Park has investigated spectroscopic properties of graphene from first-principles calculations and theoretical modeling, especially focusing on the effects of interactions between charge carriers and elementary excitations in graphene. Once we understand transport properties of graphene from atomistic quantum mechanical simulations, we can make better electronic and spintronic graphene devices. Although the focus of previous researches was on the spectroscopic properties of graphene, the results are closely related to its transport properties.
