SYH was educated at Seoul National University (BSc, 2002, summa cum laude). From 2002 to 2003, he worked with Prof. Reshef Tenne at Weizmann Institute of Science as a visiting student (government invitation program), investigating the coordination chemistry of metal chalcogenides. While carrying out his graduate studies (DPhil, Organic Chemistry, 20052009) at the University of Oxford, he designed and synthesized non-natural glyco-conjugates under the guidance of Prof. Benjamin G. Davis (supervisor, carbohydrate chemistry) and Prof. Malcolm L. H. Green (co-advisor, organometallic chemistry). Following this, he joined in the Prof. Peter H. Seeberger Group (director, oligosaccharide- and automated synthesis) at the Max Planck Institute as a postdoctoral researcher. He began an independent career in late 2010 at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST). His research has centered on the development of synthetic methods based on the understanding of catalytic manifolds, oxidation state changes, and/or reactivity modes.
