Dr. Chae received his B.S. (2010) and Ph.D. (2014, Prof. Young Hee Lee group) both in Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU). Then he worked in Columbia University from 2016 to 2021 (Prof. James Hone group) as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist. In September 2021, he was appointed as a joint Nanyang Assistant Professor at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) and the School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

Dr. Chae’s research primarily focus on understanding novel optoelectronic phenomena in atomically thin 2D materials systems, exploring their application as a new class of optoelectronic devices, and integrating their optical functions into Si photonics for information processing and beyond. Many of his research initiatives have been published in top scientific journals (Science, Nature Photonics, Nature Materials, Nature Communications, etc).
- Nanostructure material-based optoelectronics
- 2D materials integrated silicon photonics
- Photonic memory devices

The lab is seeking highly talented postdoctoral candidate (Research Fellow) and Ph.D student who are highly motivated with the following objectives:
(1) Design, fabrication, and characterization of silicon photonic devices
(2) Optoelectronic devices - Light emitters and Photodetectors
(3) Two-dimensional (2D) materials and vdW heterostructures
(4) Phase change materials (PCM), Electro-optic (EO) materials

If you are interested in this position, please send your CV to Globally competitive compensation and benefit packages will be offered.
