Jean was born in Bloomington, Indiana, and grew up in Daejeon, South Korea. She obtained B.S. at Indiana University Bloomington, then Ph.D. in chemistry at Stanford University. For doctoral research, Jean studied ultrafast dynamics proteins with nonlinear infrared spectroscopy and how they are related to structure and function with Professor Michael D. Fayer. Afterwards, Jean conducted postdoctoral research with Professor Jay T. Groves at University of California, Berkeley, where she investigated the interactions between signaling proteins and lipids on membranes.  She began her independent research career at Colorado State University in January 2019.

Tyler was born in Maplewood, Minnesota, but has lived in Fort Collins Colorado for the last 11 years. After graduating from Loveland High, he began his career at Colorado State University as an undeclared student. After taking an introductory chemistry course, he found his passion and declared chemistry as his major. Tyler is now focused on finishing his degree, while also gaining experience in the Chung Lab by learning how to use spectroscopic methods to study biological systems at a chemical level. In his free time, Tyler enjoys relaxing with friends and exercising.
