Biography
Sehwan Kim is Assistant Professor and chair of Biomedical Engineering at the Dankook University in South Korea, with a joint appointment in the Beckman Laser Institute at University of California, Irvine, CA USA. His research interests are an IoT (Internet of Things) platform for wireless sensing and efficient energy harvesting and design and low power design for the applications of biophotonics, medical devices, civil and environmental engineering.
Education
He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) from the University of California, Irvine (2011), under Prof. Pai Chou (Advisor) and Prof. Masanobu Shinozuka (co-advisor). He also worked as post doctorate scholar at Center for Embedded and Cyber-physical Systems (CECS) at UC, Irvine. Since 2008, he has built a number of wireless sensor platforms, energy harvesting systems (NAVY project), and applications, including DuraMote for civil engineering (NIST project), and the wearable wireless sensor node for infant monitoring (NIH project).
Academic
He joined Dankook University as Research Professor in the Beckman Laser Institute Korea since February 2013 and became Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering since September 2013. He has been working on developing a multi-wavelength beam combiner, an homodyne-based system, a current-controlled Electromechanical Reshaping system for biomedical application, an efficient energy harvester and a recursive DC-power distribution algorithm for energy and power optimization. He won the Low Power Design Contest Award at ISLPED 2013 and Chancellor's Best Teaching Award, Dankook University, 2016.
Service
He is a member of several Technical Program Committee of DAC and ASP-DAC, and has served on the Reviewer for numerous journals on IEEE Embedded Systems Letters, IEEE Transaction on Power Electronics, IEEE Sensors Journal, Smart Structures and Systems, and MDPI sensors.
Industry
Before joining academic area, he has 8-year industrial experience including Samsung Electronics Telecommunication Network R&D Center as a senior engineer for R&D of mobile phones.
