Lab Associate in Physics and Material Science

Lab Instructor

B.S. Gordon College

Areas of expertise:


Professor So serves as the instructor for our Introductory Physics Labs. She is dedicated to helping students wrestle with the concepts and techniques that are so integral to becoming a physicist. As an undergraduate physics major, her research focused on time-resolved spectroscopic techniques for elemental analysis, including LIBS (Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy) and other optical spectroscopy techniques.

Professor So also serves a critical role as lab associate, helping to maintain the many pieces of equipment found in both research and teaching labs throughout the department, and continuing her work on advanced spectroscopic techniques.

South Korean by birth, Jiin lived most of her life in Yanji, China. When not in the lab, she enjoys listening to music, longboarding, dancing and cooking.
