Asst Prof Bae Tae-Hyun

Tae-Hyun Bae received his B.S. (1999), M.S. (2001), and Ph.D. (2006) degrees at school of biological resources and materials engineering at Seoul National University in Korea after studying polymeric membranes and their processes for water treatments. He earned his second Ph.D. (2010) in chemical engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology under the supervision of Prof. Christopher W. Jones and Prof. Sankar Nair. His research at Georgia Tech was focused on engineering nanoporous materials for applications in gas separation membranes. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Jeffrey Long’s research group at chemistry department of UC Berkeley, where he performed research on CO2 capture with metal-organic frameworks and other porous materials. Now he is an assistant professor of chemical engineering at Nanyang Technological University.
