Research activity per year

Personal profile


Mingee was born and educated in South Korea. After obtaining PhD, he moved to France, first Orsay (Univ. Paris-Sud 11) and then Grenoble (LNCMI; National High Magnetic Field Lab.), for postdoctoral research. Since 2014 he continued research at EPFL, Switzerland, until joining the University of Birmingham in 2017 as Birmingham Fellow.

He was previously an EPFL Fellow (Marie-Sklodowska Curie COFUND, European Commission) and a recipient of Blaise Pascal Scholarship (French government).

Research interests

His research focuses on collective quantum phenomena such as the emergence of Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid, Bose-Einstein condensate and spin liquid in materials. In particular, he investigate the role of dimensionality, geometry and symmetry in quantum spin systems and zero-temperature phase transitions.
