Young-Shin Jun RSC Advances Royal Society of Chemistry


Young-Shin Jun is a Professor of Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis (Missouri, USA), where she leads the Environmental NanoChemistry Laboratory. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Ewha Womans University (Seoul, South Korea), holds Master’s and PhD degrees in Environmental Chemistry from Harvard University (Massachusetts, USA), and conducted postdoctoral research at the University of California-Berkeley/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (California, USA). Professor Jun received a 2011 U.S. National Science Foundation CAREER award, and was named a 2015 Kavli Fellow by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, a 2016 Frontier of Engineering Fellow by the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, and a 2018 Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Her research is highly interdisciplinary: She investigates energy-related subsurface engineering systems, including geologic CO2 sequestration, conventional and unconventional oil and gas recovery, and hydrothermal energy. Based on a scientific understanding of nanoscale interfacial chemistry and solid nucleation, she seeks new treatment techniques and new catalysts for purifying drinking water and remediating contaminated water and soil, benefiting water reuse, managed aquifer recharge, and membrane processes. In addition, she studies biomineralization and bio-inspired chemistry to develop novel materials for a more sustainable environment.
