BIOGRAPHY


 

 

 

Dr. Heejeong Jeong’s research interests are fundamental light-matter interaction and quantum optics for the application of quantum optical devices. She received her Ph. D from Duke University in 2006 on her first observation of optical precursors using cold potassium atoms (MOT), then she moved to Dartmouth College as a postdoc (2006-2008). In 2008, she joined Samsung Electronics, Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology, to carry out R&D of the next-generation optoelectronic devices. In 2016, Dr. Jeong joined the Department of Physics at HKUST as a Research Assistant Professor investigating a sub-natural narrowband biphoton generation in a hot atomic system and solid-state ensembles. After her Ph. D., she has research experience both in academia and industry. In the area of AMO, biophysics, optoelectronic devices, she published articles including Nature Comm (2017), two Nano Letters (2014, 2016), two PRLs (2006, 2010), and several registered patents. She won the 2015 Samsung Best Paper Award (Bronze) and research grants from Hong Kong GRC and HKUST. She is now an Associate Professor of Physics at the University of Malaya and an OSA senior member since 2019.
