Dr Mingee Chung (Minki Jeong) is Lecturer and Birmingham Fellow.
Mingee's research is focused on collective quantum phenomena in materials, where examples include the formation of macroscopic quantum-entangled states (e.g., spin liquids) as well as the emergence of quantum criticality. He is particularly interested in how dimensionality, symmetry, geometry and topology manifest themselves in such phenomena.
His research is funded by UKRI through EPSRC and STFC. He was previously an EPFL Fellow (Marie-Sklodowska Curie COFUND, European Commission) and a recipient of Blaise Pascal Scholarship (French government).
Mingee is an Editor of Journal of the Korean Physical Society (2021-2024), an Ordinary Member of the IoP's Superconductivity Committee (2021-2025) and a Full Member of EPSRC Peer Review College (since 2020; Associate Member for 2018-2020); received a recognition of "Significant Contribution to EPSRC Peer Review" for 2019-2020. He is also an active reviewer of the manuscripts from APS journals including Phys. Rev. Lett., Phys. Rev. B and others.
