Jinhye Bae is a postdoctoral fellow in the Vlassak group at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University. Her current research interests include the development of micromachined pico-calorimetric sensors that are sufficiently sensitive to resolve the metabolic power of a single cell, and 3D printable soft ionic devices consisting of an ionically conductive hydrogel and a dielectric elastomer. After earning her B.S. in Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials Engineering at Kyung Hee University, and her M.S. in Chemical and Biological Engineering at Seoul National University, she received her Ph.D. in Polymer Science and Engineering at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 2015, where she conducted research with Ryan Hayward on fluid interface mediated assembly and deformation of sub-millimeter sized soft objects, such as polymer chains and stimuli-responsive polymer networks.
