Dong Sung Kim

Dong Sung Kim received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees (mechanical engineering) from POSTECH, Pohang, Korea, in 1999, 2001, and 2005, respectively, developing disposable plastic lab on a chips for blood typing. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at POSTECH. Previously, he was Postdoctoral Fellow at POSTECH from 2005–2006. He joined the School of Mechanical Engineering at Chung-Ang University, Korea, as a faculty member in 2006. After four years in Chung-Ang University as a full-time Lecturer and an Assistant Professor, he came back to POSTECH as a faculty member in 2010. His current research is basically focused on the development of micro/nanoengineered metal molds and precision polymer molding technologies. He is interested in biomedical applications of micro/nano polymer processing, such as polystyrene micro/nanoengineered cell culture platforms, disposable lab on a chip devices, multifunctional stimuli-responsive structures, and electrohydrodynamics.
