Dr. Yoon is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at South Dakota State University. He was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan between 2010 to 2015. He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Ajou University, Korea, respectively. His current research is to develop advanced bioMEMS tools for understanding cell trafficking in cancer through isolation, characterization, and study of circulating tumor cells in the peripheral blood of cancer patients. His goal is to create cutting edge engineering solutions to clinical problems with novel translational biomedical research tools. He has published more than 40 journal and conference papers, including Nature Nanotechnology, Advanced Materials, ACS Nano, Analytical Chemistry, Sensors and Actuators A, B, etc.
