Dr. Kim is Assistant Professor of Radiology in the BioMedical Engineering and Imaging Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. His research focuses on developing soft, stretchable, and wireless electronic systems that gently integrates with the skin. Dr. Kim received BS and MS in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2009 and 2012, respectively, and PhD in Bioengineering from the University of California San Diego in 2017. In 2021, Dr. Kim completed his postdoctoral training at Georgia Institute of Technology, where he served as Research Faculty until 2022. Leveraging a wide range of emerging nanomanufacturing technologies, such as MEMS, aerosol-jet and screen printing, laser micromachining, and electronic chip integration, Dr. Kim strives to translate the concepts of smart medicine and human-machine interfaces into practical applications. Examples include a printed stress monitoring patch, a multi-functional patch with real-time alert features based on machine learning, and face-wearable sensors for ocular therapies.
