Kangwook Kim, Ph.D.


Kangwook Kim (김강욱; 金康旭) received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Ajou University, Korea, in 1997, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, GA, USA, in 2001 and 2003, respectively. His Ph.D. research was on the design, analysis, and measurement of pulse-radiating antennas. From 1999 to 2003, he participated in the ultra-wideband, pulse-radiating antenna research as a graduate research assistant, and from 2003 to 2005, he participated in the multimodal landmine detection system research at the Georgia Institute of Technology as a postdoctoral fellow. From 2005 to 2006, he was with the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology. He joined the faculty of the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology in 2006 as an assistant professor. His current research interests include electromagnetic remote sensing, ultra-wideband electromagnetics, and near-field electromagnetics.
