Myungshik works on quantum optics and quantum information theory. He has been at various places including Sogang University, Essex University, Max-Planck Institute for Quantum Optics and Queen's University Belfast.

He is proud of his master's degree in business administration not necessarily because it is useful though.

He was elected a member of the Royal Irish Academy in 2009.

Alumni of his group include Jinhyoung Lee (Hanyang University), Hyunseok (Jacob) Jeong (Seoul National University: 2004 IoP QEP thesis prize winner), Mauro Paternostro (Queen's University Belfast), Wonmin Son (Sogang University), Mark Tame (Kwazulu-Natal), Carlo Di Franco (Imperial College London), Daniel Bellester, Petr Marek (Palacky University; 2010 Votruba thesis prize winner), Elinor Irish (Southampton University), Sean Springer (Royal Belfast Academical Institute), Ebyung Park and Chris Ogden.

Some of them have been adventurous to go to bio/socio informatics research: Helen McAneny (Queen's University Belfast) and Derek Wilson (European Bioinformatics Institute).

He belongs to the Quantum Information Theory Group at Imperial College (webpage here).

He is involved in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Controlled Quantum Dynamics (webpage here).
