Properties of crystal structures are dependent on their sizes, morphologies and facets. Thus, controlling crystal growth should play important roles in application areas. To precisely control crystal growth, growth mechanisms should be understood. We study classical and nonclassical crystal growth mechanisms. We are also keen to study composites of two (or more) diﬀerent metal oxides (phases) because they can create greater ﬂexibility on properties and multi-functionality and phase separation phenomena are also very interesting from a basic science point of view. Another research area that we are interested in is surface modiﬁcations of metal oxides which can eﬀectively modulate properties of the metal oxides and generate new functionalities. We will develop such crystal growth and modiﬁcation methods to create unprecedented metal oxide structures which can be applied to energy harvesting, light emitting, energy storage, data storage, water puriﬁcation and other areas and used to study electrocatalysis, ferroelectricity, magnetism, magnetoelectric coupling eﬀect, ionic conduction, etc.

UNIST-Helmholtz Juelich Center for Future Energy Solution
Two emerging keywords in ceramic community are sustainability and tailored functionality for advanced applications. This high-eﬃcientoriented and eco-friendly approach are to respond properly to the environmental regulations getting tougher and tougher. One of the biggest challenges on this quest lies in the fact that most useful ceramic materials contain nominally toxic elements that should be eventually removed. Our goal is to best-tailor the functionality of ceramic materials to meet the requirements for practical applications in accordance with the environmental appropriateness.

Our lab seeks to understand the collective dynamics of functional particles due to induced or local interactions and utilize them to discover new engineering principles in developing intelligent soft material systems. A collection of particles spontaneously arrange themselves as a coherent super-structure, which sometimes displays emergent characteristics. Therefore, I will seek to identify key ingredients for selfassembly as a set of responsive building blocks, energy, and interactions. I will consider these ingredients as a methodology that promotes technological initiatives including smart manufacturing and functional diversiﬁcation of programmable matter at nearly every scale.

Experiments and computer modeling have been used for characterizing the microstructures of materials to study their relationship to desired properties and to optimize the materials design and performance. In nature, many problems related to the material properties are threedimensional because most practical materials have a polycrystalline or multi-phase structure with complexity in spatial arrangements of the microstructural unit, and are subject to various processes. Therefore, it is of interest to characterize microstructural parameters and reveal their eﬀects on the properties of materials in all three dimensions.

때는 거절하고 싶은 마음이 먼저 들더군요. 왜냐하면 제가 후배들에게 섣부른 조언이나
제 이야기를 하는 것은 매우 신중해야 한다고 늘 생각하고 있었거든요. 하지만 꼭 후배
들에게 해주고 싶은 말이 있어서 짧은 글을 시작해봅니다.
저는 2015년도 2월에 신소재공학부 박사졸업을 마치고, 그 해 10월에 박사 후 연구원으
로 일하기 위해 영국 케임브리지대학교 카벤디쉬 연구소로 오게 되었습니다. 처음 영국 에 왔을 때 언어도 다른 이곳에서 잘 할 수 있을까? 여기에 있는 사람들은 다 똑똑하고 능
력이 엄청 뛰어날 텐데 라는 생각을 매일하며 하루하루를 보냈던 게 생각납니다. 솔직히
낯선 땅에서 외국인들과 함께 일을 하는 것이 부담스럽고 위축이 되었던 것도 사실이었 습니다. 하지만 지금은 그렇지 않습니다. 그 사연을 후배들에게 조금 나누고자 합니다. 두려움을 깨는 순간! 비로서 내가 나다워 지는 순간!
‘여기 사람들이 나보다 똑똑하고 영어를 잘할지는 모르겠지만 나는 이곳에서 그 누구보
다 소자를 잘 만들 수 있다. 그 누구보다 발광소자나 태양전지에 대한 경험이 많다. 내가
가장 잘할 수 있는 부분부터 인정받자. 내가 가진 지식과 경험을 이들과 진실되게 공유
하자.’ 라는 생각을 가지고 접근했던 것이 이곳에 잘 적응할 수 있었던 비결이었습니다.
여기 사람들도 점차 저의 전문성을 인정해주고 저의 진실성을 느꼈던 것 같습니다. 내
가 조금 손해 보더라도 진실되게 대하는 것, 저는 그게 무척 중요하다고 생각합니다. 그
노력은 반드시 나에게 큰 도움으로 다시 돌아왔습니다. 또한 케임브리지대학교에서 가
장 크게 느낀 점은 유니스트의 위상과 우리의 실력이 결코 낮거나 부족하지 않다는 것이 었습니다.
두려움을 깨는 순간! 비로서 내가 나다워 지는 순간! 76
저를 포함한 유니스트 졸업생, 특히 신소재공학부 후배님들! 여러분의 가능성이나 능력
은 여러분이 생각하는 것보다 훨씬 더 크고 뛰어납니다. 그걸 빨리 깨닫고 꿈꿔왔던 그
길을 차근차근 준비해서 도전해보기를 소망해봅니다.
교만하지 않고 겸손을 겸비한 자신감! 이것이 졸업을 하고 새로운 환경에 접하는 후배
님들의 큰 힘이 될 것이라 전 믿습니다. 저도 2017년 9월부터 부경대학교 물리학과에 임
용되어 한국에서의 새로운 사회생활을 시작할 예정입니다. 저 또한 새로운 환경에서 새
롭게 저의 꿈을 꾸며 나아가겠습니다. 늘 응원합니다!
최재경 신소재공학과 15년도 졸업 현 한국과학기술정보연구원
반가워요 후배님. 저는 2015년 울산과학기술원 신소재공학과 석박통합과정으로 졸업
한 최재경 이에요. 누구나 졸업생은 ‘학생 시절 시간이 너무 잘 갔다, 그 때가 즐거웠다’
는 등의 말을 한다고 하는데, 지금 제가 그 시기에요. 학생 시절이 정말 그리워지네요. 직
장인이 되고 어느새 예비 아빠가 되다보니, 어깨가 무거워 졌어요. 해결할 수 없는 걱정
들도 존재하네요. 지금 와서 생각해보면 학생시절 때 했던 걱정은 늘 해답이 주어져 있
던 어렵지 않은 것들 이었네요. 그리고 그때는 동기 분들도 참 힘이 되었었지요. 그래도
그때보다 지금이 행복해요. 행복해야할 이유들이 생겼거든요.
당시 저는 학생 시절 주머니 사정이 좋지도 않았고, 그렇다고 지식이 뛰어난 것도 아니
었어요. 그래서 졸업을 앞두고 저조한 스펙만으로는 늘 불안했었지요. 취업은 꿈만 같
았어요. 취업 준비기간이 정확히 1년 6개월이었어요. 요즘말로 ‘광탈’(빠른 속도로 서류
탈락)이 50건을 훌쩍 넘었을 걸요? 그렇게 취업을 준비하다가 발견한 내 자신의 커리어
들을 보게 되었어요. 따지고 보면 대학 교육만 10년을 받았는데, 공부 외에 것을 하나씩
뭉쳐보니, 적성이 보이게 되었고, 그 적성이 필요한 곳에 입사를 하게 되었지요. 그곳이
여기 한국과학기술정보연구원 이에요. 여기는 빅데이터를 수집하고 유통하는 정부출
연연구소 입니다. 특히 저의 출신 지역인 울산시의 중소기업에 필요한 빅데이터를 다양
한 수단으로 지원하고 있지요. 신소재 공학과의 전공을 살려 빅데이터를 다루는 분야에
취업하게 될 줄은 누구도 몰랐겠지요? 웃기지 않나요? 늘 직접적인 R&D만 하다가 졸업
이 다되어서야 적성을 새로이 발견하여 비R&D분야에 입사하게 된 것을요. 그러나 여기
서도 충분히 전공을 살리고 있어요. 즉, 입사를 하게된 요인이 운과 기회가 아니라는 것
이지요. 유니스트에서 높은 수준의 학습 강도와 졸업 조건, 담당 교수님의 교육철학 등
이 지금의 저를 만들었지요. 저는 늘 제가 하고 있는 학습과 연구가 진정으로 필요한 곳
에 도움이 되길 간절히 바라고 있어요 후배님, 그렇다할 스펙이 없어도 좌절하지 마세
요. 취업 준비가 일년 이상이 걸린다 해도 포기하지 마세요. 친구를 많이 만드시고 교수
님 분들을 존경해 보세요. 관계에서 틀어진 사람이 있으면 너그럽게 받아주세요. 자신
의 그릇을 키우세요. 그래서 취업 후 서로 도움이 될 수 있는 날을 그려 보세요. 누구보다
더 큰 자질을 갖는 것이에요. 한 가지 더, 유니스트 출신인 것에 자부심을 가지세요, 저는
해외 여느 명문대보다도 자랑스럽네요. 언젠가 제가 있는 곳도 유니스트 후배분들이 오
후배님들, 유니스트 출신인 것에 자부심을 가지세요!
시길 진심으로 바래 봅니다.

교수님들께 조언을 구하며 고민 끝에, 졸업 후 연구실이 아닌 취업을 택했던 제 이야기
사실 학업에만 충실해 학점을 완벽하게 관리하던 학생은 아니었습니다. 다양한 것을 경
험해보려 했고, 그것들을 통해 (비록 의도한 게 아니라 해도) 많은 것을 배웠습니다. 저는 신소재공학과 함께 산업 디자인을 융합 전공했습니다. 쌩뚱맞을지도 모를 디자인이라
는 전공을 통해 공돌(순)이에게 부족한 감각을 키울 수 있었고, 이것은 여러 방면에서 저 를 Flexible한 사람이 되도록 도와주었습니다. 학부 회장을 하면서는 다른 사람들과 함 께 일하는 법을 배웠다. 교과서 같은 말로 들리겠지만, 지금도 학생회 친구들과 만나면
자주 하는 얘기가 ‘내가 회사 와서 겪어보니까, 너넨 다 회사오면 잘해낼 거야.’ 입니다.
후배 분들에게 ‘디자인 전공하고, 학생회 해보세요~’ 하려고 구구절절 말한 것은 아니
고, 기계적으로 취업에 필요해서 무작정 Spec을 쌓으려고 하기보다, 이런 저런 경험들

는 사람은 일 처리를 잘 하는 사람입니다. 필요한 것을 명확히 해, 유관부서와 협의하고,
원하는 결론을 끌어내는 사람. 일 머리가 좋은 사람. 경험을 통해서만 키울 수 있는 가장
강력한 Spec이 아닐까 싶습니다.
현업에서 찌든(?) 티가 나는 것 같아 조금 부끄럽지만, 취업을 준비하는 후배 분들께 도
움이 되기를 바랍니다. 여러분은 아직도 너무나 젊고 파릇해요! (저는 아직도 팀 막내랍

신희섭 신소재공학부 16년도 졸업 현 현대자동차
안녕하세요. 저는 현대자동차 재료개발센터에서 2년차 연구원으로 일하고 있는 4회 졸
업생 신소재공학부 10학번 신희섭입니다. 사내연수를 받으며 정신 없이 다녀왔던 졸업
식이 엊그제 같은데, 벌써 1년반이 지나 졸업을 앞둔 후배님들에게 한마디 전할 수 있는
기회가 생기다니 감회가 새롭네요.
지금쯤이면 대부분 진학이나 취업, 창업 등 본인의 진로들에 대한 고민을 마치시고 이
를 이루기 위해 열심히 노력하고 계실 시기일 것 같은데요. 여러분들은 UNIST에서 어
떠한 것들을 이루고 얻어가시나요? 전공에 대한 지식, 폭넓은 교우관계, 다양한 대외활
동, 색다른 특별한 경험 등 모두 좋습니다. 저 같은 경우는 기본적인 것에서부터 스스로
단단해지려는 마음 가짐을 얻어간 것 같아요. 뛰어나고 다양한 학생들 사이에서 많이 겸손해지고 자만하지 않으려고 마음먹고, 미래에 대한 막연한 생각을 구체화할 수 있도
록 제 자신을 많이 되돌아보려고 했던 것 같아요. 겉으로 보이는 화려한 경험들도 물론
중요할 수 있지만 스스로에 대한 자신감을 키우고 내실을 다질 수 있었던 시간이었던 것
사회로의 첫발을 내딛기 전에 많은 기대감, 설렘 혹은 걱정, 고민들이 있으실 텐데요. 가
장 중요한 것은 본인이 하고 싶은 것은 무엇인지에 대한 고찰, 그 일과 관련된 사소한 것
에서부터의 관심, 그리고 과장되지 않은 솔직한 본인의 모습을 잘 보여줄 수 있는 자신
감이 중요하다고 생각해요. 그러한 노력들이 모여 언젠가 마주치게 될 기회들을 놓치지
않고 잡을 수 있게 될 거에요.
학교에서의 소중한 시간, 경험들이 헛되지 않았다고 느낄 수 있도록 졸업 직전까지 치
열하게 준비하고 고민하셔서 유종의 미를 거둘 수 있었으면 좋겠어요. 저는 정말 감사
하고 운이 좋게도 졸업과 동시에 취업을 할 수 있었지만 혹시나 조금은 뒤쳐진다고 해서
조급해하고 걱정하지 마세요. 우리 학교 학생들처럼 내실 있는 사람들은 어디 가서도 부족하지 않고, 진가를 알아보는 사람들이 반드시 있을 겁니다. 혹시나 취업을 준비하
는 후배님들 중 도움이나 조언이 필요한 분이 계시면 언제든 연락을 주시면 조금이라도
도움의 말을 줄 수 있도록 기다리고 있겠어요.
