Bongjae F. Lee

Graduate Student

Bongjae received his B.S and M.S degree in Materials Science and Engineering in Seoul
National University, Korea. Bongjae began his professional career in 2003 at Samsung
before starting his doctorate study in Craig Hawker’s group in UCSB in the fall of 2009.


Initially, Bongjae studied controlled anionic polymerization and developed a
new characterization method to analyze sequence distribution of oxy-anionic
copolymerization. His current research examined the synthesis of a new biomedical drug
delivery platform based on conjugating the copolymer with nucleic acids.
