Dr. Tae-Eun Kwon joined DCEG as a postdoctoral fellow in the Radiation Epidemiology Branch (REB) in March 2022. He received a B.S.E. in 2012, an M.S. in 2014, and a Ph.D. in 2021, all in nuclear engineering, at Hanyang University, Seoul, South Korea. For his Ph.D. research, he established the Korean-specific internal dose assessment system for radioiodine by developing the Korean-specific iodine biokinetic model and calculating S values based on the Korean reference computational phantoms.
In REB, Dr. Kwon is working on dose assessment for thyroid cancer patients and on dose recalculation for the U.S. Radiologic Technologists Cohort under the mentorship of Choosik Lee, Ph.D., head of REB’s Dosimetry Unit.
