About

I am Hanseo Kim, a passionate scientist, photographer, filmmaker, and student residing in the vibrant city of Daegu. Developing novel technologies—something no one in the world has done before—is my passion. From meticulous research and innovative engineering to creative photography, I always attempt unique endeavors that set me apart from others. From superhero motion graphics to award-winning historical documentaries, my imagination knows no bounds.

I am a student researcher at Kyungpook National University, where I spearheaded the development of the world's first moisture powered flexible carbon capture technology: a “self-rechargeable thin-film supercapacitor that adsorbs carbon dioxide,” leveraging moisture-induced electricity generation. This groundbreaking technology integrates a thin-film supercapacitor to spontaneously form an electric double layer, capturing carbon dioxide.


With this project, I was awarded one of the top awards at the 2023 Korea Science & Engineering Fair, and my project was selected as one of the three projects from my country to represent South Korea at the 2024 European Union Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS).
