Youngsup received his B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Yonsei University, where he developed nanomaterial-integrated MEMS devices. During his PhD at MIT Device Research Lab (DRL), he focused on mechanistic understanding and enhancing pool boiling heat transfer via surface property and structure design. Prior to his PhD study, he also worked at Korea Institute of Materials Science (KIMS) in Electrochemistry Department.
