Yunsun Jeong is currently working at the Toxicological Centre, University of Antwerp as a postdoctoral researcher.

Yunsun is participating in the project 'The triboreactor as breakthrough remediation strategy for safeguarding human and environmental health (triboREMEDY)' which is aiming at developing novel technology to breakdown the structure of PCBs and inactivation of pathogens. Regardless of historical regulation on PCBs over decades, PCB contamination is still serious problem because of their strong persistence and toxicity. Therefore, developing remediation technology of PCBs have been issued in numerous research and technical fields. triboREMEDY is driven by a multidisciplinary team of excellent researchers in mechanical engineering, chemistry, physics, biology, and medicine enabling the unique breakthrough and interdisciplinary approach, as well as good communication and collaboration skills. In the project 'triboREMEDY', Yunsun will analyze the degradation products of PCBs and other possible byproducts using targeted (GC-MS, GC-MS/MS, and LC-MS/MS) and non-targeted (LC-QTOF) analyzing skills.
