Jiwoong Park is a Professor in Chemistry and Insitute of Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago. His current research interests are studying the physical and chemical properties of nanoscale materials, including carbon nanotubes, graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides. His group's research frequently appears on prestigious journals such as Nature, Science and Nature Nanotechnology. Professor Park is a recipient of the NSF CAREER award (2008), the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (2009) and the Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship (2010). 

He received a B.S. degree in physics from Seoul National University (1996) and a Ph.D. in physics from the University of California, Berkeley (2003). During his graduate studies (advisor: Professor Paul McEuen also at Cornell), he investigated electron transport in single molecules and reported electrical devices based on single atoms for the first time. After graduation, he was selected as one of the first Junior Rowland Fellows at the Rowland Institute at Harvard University. In 2006, he joined the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University as an Assistant Professor. He joined the Department of Chemistry in 2016 with joint appointment in the Insitute of Molecular Engineering as a Professor at the University of Chicago and is an Associate Director of Nano Letters since 2017.
