Ms Sungyeon Hong

Associate Lecturer, School of Cybernetics
ANU College of Engineering, Computing and Cybernetics

Research interests

  • Pattern formation 
  • Self-organisation 
  • Universality 
  • Out-of-equilibrium phase transitions 
  • Cellular geometries 
  • Soft condensed matter 


After obtaining Bachelor's degree in mathematics at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Sungyeon moved to Switzerland to pursue her Masters' degree in mathematics at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).

For her Master's, Sungyeon analysed brain networks through the lens of topological data analysis (TDA), and she further honed the TDA skills in materials science through a research internship at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST). 

During her PhD in physics at ANU, Sungyeon focused on investigating the emergence of topological entities in two-dimension, accompanied by non-equilibrium dynamics, along a geometric quench process.
