bulletYong-Eun Lee Koo

Yong-Eun Lee Koo
(Post-Doc, Analytical Chemistry)
yeleekoo@umich.edu

Education:
Ph.D. (Physical Chemistry), University of Michigan, 1991.
M.S. (Physical Chemistry), Seoul National University, 1984.
B.S. (Chemistry), Seoul National University, 1982.

Current Research:
Current research interests are focused on the development of biochemical nano-sensors and photodynamic therapeutic nanoparticles. I am developing an oxygen sensor encapsulated in an organically modified silica nano-particle and nanoparticles containing photosensitizers as a photodynamic therapeutic tool targeted at cancer cells.
I have also worked on many environmental problems, which occurr on highways, while working as the head of the environment research division at the Korea Highway Corporation in Korea. Environmental issues such as air/soil/water quality, disposal/recycling of highway-generated waste and environmentally benign de-icer constitute my other research interests.
 

Professional Experience:

  • 2001-present: Post-doctoral fellow, Dept. of Chemistry, The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

  • 1999-2001: Division head of environment research division at Highway Research Center, Korea Highway Corporation
    1997-2001: Chief researcher at Highway Research Center, Korea Highway Corporation
  • 1995-1997: Research scientist at Agency for Technology and standards, Ministry of Commerce, Industry, and Energy, Korea.
    1993-1995: Visiting instructor, Dept. of Chemistry, Chung-Ang University, Korea
  • 1991-1992: Post-doctoral fellow, Dept. of Chemistry, The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
  • 1990-1991: Research Assistant, Dept. of Chemistry, The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
  • 1985-1987: Teaching Assistant, Dept. of Chemistry, The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
  • 1984-1985: Assistant laboratory manager in Pfizer Korea Inc. (Pharmaceutical Company)
