Professor Yuong-Nam Lee, Ph.D.
김성영 (Seong Yeong Kim)
I am Seong Yeong Kim at Paleontological laboratory. I liked dinosaur very much from my childhood, so it was natural that I started being interested in Geology. The more I knew of it, the more I wanted to study it. This is the reason why I chose geology as my major and has become a great motivation I dedicated myself to studying it hard. In undergraduate course, I widely learned entire field of the study. In master’s course, I specifically studied sedimentology and paleoenvironment in Pukyoung National University, and I researched the taphonomy of invertebrate fossils excavated in the Jinju Formation, lacustrine deposits developed in Cretaceous. After graduation from the department, I worked in Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM) as the postmaster for a year. During the training period, I researched authigenic carbonates precipitated in sediments by gas hydrate dissociation. Finally, this year, I began to study dinosaur at Seoul National University. Though I am almost a beginner in the field, I would like to research taphonomy, physiology, evolutionary biology, and bones through SEM.
이한울 (Hanwool Lee)
Combined Master's & Doctoral student
My research interests are focused on the evolution of Cenozoic mammals, Mesozoic dinosaurs, and their diversification into modern families, using extensive anatomical and functional knowledge as a basis for comparison. Especially, interested in the evolution and community structure of carnivorans, human, and theropods.
이성진 (Sungjin Lee)
My interests are as diverse as dinosaurs, from their evolution to physiology to ecology. Studying their various shapes and lifestyles with fossil remains is what I do in order to know more about these fascinating creatures. Also, I have great interest in systematics and want to figure out phylogenetic relationships among Mesozoic dinosaurs and other archosaurs, mainly those lived in East Asia.
박진영 (Jin-Young Park)
Born 1987 in Seoul, South Korea, and I was a paleo geek ever since. I studied conodonts during junior and senior years in Kangwon National University, and received a master’s degree on Paleontology from Chonnam National University. I have published some articles about lizard and dinosaur fossils, and also named a new genus and species of fossil varanoid lizard, Asprosaurus bibongriensis, in 2015
김수환 (Su-Hwan Kim)
I studied Cenozoic fishes during my undergraduate in Kyungpook National University. My interests are taxonomy of fossil fishes and their paleoenvironment based on sedimentary rocks. I think it is worth to study fossil fishes for understanding of paleobiodiversity of Korean peninsula. Through my research activities, I hope that many people become interested in fossil fishes and their evolution.
윤한상 (Han Sang Yoon)
Dinosaurs leaded my way to the natural science, especially geology and paleontology. Nowadays my research interests are focused on taphonomy and sedimentology, and using these tools I want to reconstruct paleoenvironment in more detailed ways. As a beginner, my main subject is dinosaur footprints and trackways, and I hope I could understand their behaviors and inhabited environment through their traces.
김뇌헌 (Noe Heon Kim)
My research interests are focused on studies of extinct and extant archosaurian eggs. I am especially interested in analyzing the crystallographic characters of various eggshells by using EBSD (Electron Backscatter Diffraction), and ultimately understanding archosaurian egg evolution. Although many dinosaur egg sites have been found in Korea, they are not extensively studied yet. Therefore, revealing the paleobiodiversity of eggs in Korea and its relationship within East Asia is one of my objectives.
홍성윤 (Sung Yoon Hong)
Hello, my name is Sungyoon Hong. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2017 with a Geoscience degree. I have experience as a fossil preparator for 3 years in the school's Geology museum and as a lab intern in Two Medicine Dinosaur Center (Bynum, Montana) for 3 months. Also, I conducted a quantitative study of the relationship between ammonite shell and their geographical distribution during my undergraduate years. My main interest in paleontology includes paleobiogeography, paleoecology, systematics, and evolution/extinction in extinct vertebrates. Especially, I am deeply interested in change of global distribution of extinct vertebrates through geologic time and find out the meaningful geographic and evolutionary pattern behind it. I am particularly interested in biogeography of Southern continent dinosaurs (especially Abelisaurs, Titanosaurs, and Elasmaria) and late early Jurassic/early middle Jurassic vertebrate fossil gap anomaly.
김 도 현 (Dohyeon Kim)
My name is Dohyeon Kim. I have been interested in Paleontology since I was a child. And when I was a university freshman in 2015, I had a great chance to participated in a special program (Gobi Dinosaur Supporters) organized by Prof. Lee. It was my first experience to discover and excavate dinosaur’s fossils. That unforgettable memory led me to find my goal that becomes a paleontologist.
My hobby is exercising and enjoying epicurism. Whenever I get stressed out, I have delicious food after doing extreme sports. I love reading books and meditating in a calm cafe sometimes.
