Seonkyoo Yoon

Postdoctoral Associate

I am a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. I received my Ph.D. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2016. My PhD thesis was on developing computationally efficient subsurface flow models and inverse modeling methods to characterize hydrogeological parameters. My research centers on model-data fusion, combining process-based models with data-driven methods, to improve predictive capability and understanding of hydrogeological systems. I am currently working on Transport, mixing, and reaction in fractured media and characterizing flow and transport in Field Hydrogeology Research Site.

I am a father of a brave 8-year-old son, a wise 5-year-old daughter, and an adorable 1-year-old daughter, and a husband to a beautiful and lovely wife. We enjoy strengthening our bond through deep conversations every night before bedtime, fostering a deeply rooted love. Additionally, we delight in family activities such as playing board games, spending time at playgrounds and pools, and traveling to urban and rural areas where we can appreciate the beautiful nature and the community that God has created.
