As of February 15th, Professor Hongki Kang joined us in the Department of Information and Communication Engineering at DGIST.
Professor Kang received his BS degree in Electrical Engineering from KAIST, Daejeon, Korea in 2008. He then received his MS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from University of California, Berkeley in 2010 and 2013, respectively.
His PhD dissertation was on high performance printed flexible electronics. He then expanded his research area towards Bioengineering and Neural Engineering while he worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Dept. of Electrical Engineering at Columbia University, New York, USA (from March 2014 to June 2015) and in the Dept. of Bio and Brain Engineering at KAIST, Daejeon, Korea (from July 2015 to February 2019). His most recent work deals with bio-functional nanomaterial microfabrication process for neurological disorder treatment (https://www.natureindex.com/article/10.1021/acsnano.7b06617, https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/04/180406112224.htm).
Bioelectronics, Neural interfaces using Novel microelectronic devices and processes are the current main research interests of Professor Hongki Kang. He has 24 peer-reviewed international multidisciplinary journal publications in nano-bio-electronics area including Advanced Materials and ACS Nano. He also has been actively participating in renowned academic international conferences such as MRS and IEEE EMBS.
