  1. B.S. Chemistry, University of Chicago
  2. Ph.D. Inorganic Chemistry, Yale University

Research Interests:

Hee-Won graduated from University of Chicago in 2010 with a B.S. in Chemistry, where she performed research on Pd catalysts for polymerization of olefins under the direction of Professor Richard F. Jordan. For her Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry, she worked with Professor Nilay Hazari at Yale University, where she worked on air-sensitive chemistry toward design of efficient transition-metal-based catalysts, with particular focus on using carbon dioxide as a chemical feedstock. She joined the Saltzman group in August 2015, and she currently works on synthesis and modification of novel polymer-based nano-scale systems for therapeutic applications.
