Sol A joined the Atwater group in November 2022 as a postdoctoral fellow of the National Research Foundation (NRF) in South Korea (Sejong Science Fellowship). She received her BSc in Materials Science and Engineering from Seoul National University of Science and Technology. She did her doctoral degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Seoul National University under the supervision of Prof. Ho Won Jang. In her Ph.D., she worked on tailoring the photoelectrochemistry of transition metal-based catalysts on silicon for solar water splitting.
At Caltech, her research interests focus on the design of photoelectrochemical tandem structures and electrocatalysts toward spontaneous solar water splitting and carbon dioxide reduction.
