Sejeong Kim is a lecturer at the University of Melbourne, Australia. She obtained her PhD in Physics from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in 2014. She was a research fellow at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) from 2017 to 2020. Her research focuses on exploring light-matter interaction at the nanoscale, particularly using optical/plasmonic cavities. This includes studies of photonic crystal cavities for microlasers, sensors and quantum applications, as well as developing an integrated photonics platform. She won the Excellence Award for a Young Scientist (2018) and the Best Emerging Scientist Award in Photonics and Quantum Electronics (2017) from Korea. In 2019, she was selected as the 30 Rising Stars by the Optical Society of Korea. Last year, she won iCANX Global Young Scientist Award. She is appointed as the Editorial Advisory Board member of APL Photonics and elected as one of the Technical Group Leaders of OPTICA.
