Dr. Park’s research interests are in the field of advanced composite and nanocomposite technologies for development of functional and intelligent materials and structures, that is, materials that “think” and “respond.”  In particular, his research focus is on the application of high-performance nanoscale materials, especially graphene and carbon nanotubes, to multifunctional composites and structures.  An example would be a “smart” automotive vehicle or aircraft that can self-sense its structural health, protect itself from external disturbances or hazards, and ultimately self-adjust or take necessary measures with minimal human intervention. More recently, Dr. Park has expanded his scope of research into novel technologies for rapid, affordable manufacturing of fiber-reinforced composites, particularly targeted for automotive industry. Currently, Dr. Park is serving as the director of the UNIST Composites Research Center in collaboration with Fraunhofer ICT.
