Whirang Cho (Fed)

Dr. Whirang Cho is a guest researcher in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division in the Physical Measurement Laboratory at NIST. She received B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Engineering from the Seoul National University in S. Korea. Her research interests encapsulate functional nanomaterials and interfacial coatings, including functionalization of carbon fiber microelectrodes (CFMEs), carbohydrates (chitosan, cellulose), and conducting polymers. Investigating the morphologies and structures of the materials and developing functional nano(bio)materials has been a primary goal of her research.
