Jeeseong Hwang, PhD
National Institute of Standards and Technology
Dr. Jeeseong Hwang is a Project Leader and Research Biophysicist at the Physics Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology NIST of US Department of Commerce His work at NIST in 1994 began with an award of US National Research Council Fellowship on nearfield optical scanning probe microscopy of nanoscale biomimetic and biological materials and structures Before coming to NIST he was a research scientist in an immunology laboratory at the biology department of the Johns Hopkins University investigating biophysical aspects of immune response of human cells using superresolution nearfield scanning optical microscopy and other laserbased optical imaging techniques in collaboration with ATT Bell Laboratories His Ph D thesis work at the physics department of Michigan State University was on scanning probe microscopy of nanoscale quantum structures and metal surfaces Recent contributions to professional societies include program committee of the annual SPIE BiOS convention since 2006 ISO scanning probe microscopy subcommittee in 20052007 He received many awards including US/DoC Silver Medal in 2008.
