King Group


John King leads a group at the Institute for Basic Science, Center for Soft and Living Matter (S. Korea), which focuses on understanding how molecular and macromolecular structure and dynamics manifest in the bulk-level behavior of soft materials. He joined the Institute for Basic Science following a post-doc at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (2013-2016), where he worked on super-resolution microscopy and its application to polymer physics. He received a PhD in chemistry from the University of Michigan (2009-2013) studying ultrafast multidimensional spectroscopy of liquids.
