Min Chul graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering with Magna Cum Laude in 2015. He received his M.S. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Columbia University in 2017. As an undergraduate, Min worked on analog/mixed integrated circuit design and passive-mixer first RF receivers. Before joining the Lipson Nanophotonics Group, Min was a Ph.D. student at UCSD working in mm-Wave/RF circuits for 5G communications.
He is interested in incorporating novel photonic systems with computational imaging algorithms. His current research also focuses on AR head-mounted displays, volumetric/computational displays, LiDAR, and 3D sensors leveraging silicon photonics. Min received Nikola Tesla Electrical Engineering Scholar Award, EGSC Professional Development Scholarship, M.S. EE Honors, M.S. Award of Excellence, and Facebook Fellowship. Out of the lab, he enjoys playing golf, reading, watching movies, and traveling. Min has lived in five different countries (South Korea, Japan, Turkey, India, and U.S).
