Kijun Park

Kijun Park attended the Kyungpook National University and graduated 1998 with a major in physics and minor in educations. He attended graduate school at the Kyungpook National University, graduating with a Ph.D. in Experimental Nuclear Physics in June 2006. He joined the CLAS project in JLab as an undergraduate and has been working continuously on CLAS experiments as a term member of the collaboration. His Ph.D. work was carried out with the first 6-GeV experimental data from CLAS. He was awarded the title Promising Young Physicist in 2011 and gave a seminar at the College of William and Mary in VA. Kijun then served as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of South Carolina from 2005 - 2009, during which time he was stationed at the USC campus in Columbia, South Carolina. In 2009, Kijun joined Jefferson Lab as a postdoctoral researcher, where he studied charged meson production at high momentum transfer. He has over 100 publications including 15 papers as the first author or lead group author in refereed journals such as Phys. Rev. C, Eur. Phys. J. A, and in published proceedings of international conferences. In the course of his work, he carried out a variety of physics analysis and detector maintenance projects. During his tenure as a USC postdoctoral researcher, he mentored several graduated students, guiding them in terms of physics analysis and detector techniques.
