Welcome to The Park Group!



We build modern integrated circuits using atomically thin materials by combining chemical and physical approaches.

About Park Group

We are an interdisciplinary research group and a proud member of the Department of Chemistry and the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering at University of Chicago. Our group is conducting research on the synthesis, assembly and chracterization of nanoscale materials and devices using a variety of advanced tools.


New publication and perspective in Science!

We have a new publication in Science about guiding light using 2D materials. Read more from the UChicago News article. Also, Prof. Jiwoong Park wrote a perspective article for Science on an article about mechanical manipulation of 2D materials.

Welcome Hyojin

Hyojin Seung joined our lab as a postdoctoral fellow, coming from Seoul National University. So great to have you be part of our team!

Farewell, We Wish You The Best!

Farewell to Baorui who graduated this summer with his PhD in Chemistry. He will be starting at Applied Materials! Also farewell to Gustavo, who was our visiting postdoctoral fellow this past year. Goodbye to Jaehyung, who will be starting as an assistant professor in...
