  • Biography
    Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Iowa State University Principal Investigator, Plasmonics & Microphotonics Laboratory, Iowa State University Jay Kim received his B.S. and M.S. degrees, all in EE, from Kwangwoon University at Seoul, Korea and the University of Arizona at Tucson, respectively. Following the mandatory military service in the Republic of Korea Army, he became a research engineer in the Institute for Advanced Engineering at Seoul, Korea, working in the field of electro-optics. In 1997, he proceeded to the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor where he obtained his Ph.D. in EE in 2003 under the direction of Professors Kim A. Winick and Mohammed N. Islam, with a thesis on integrated optical components and fiber-optic devices for lightwave transmission systems. For his postdoctoral study, he joined the BioPOEMS research group of Professor Luke P. Lee in the University of California at Berkeley where his research dealt with biomimetic optical systems and plasmonically engineered nanostructures. In 2006, he joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering department of Iowa State University as an assistant professor. His current research interests include novel plasmonic waveguiding structures, optical biosensing, and biomimetic optical devices. Prof. Kim is the receipient of National Science Foundation's Faculty Early Career Development Award (2010). He is also the recipient of Warren B. Boast Undergraduate Teaching Award (2008) and Harpole-Pentair Developing Faculty Award (2009)., a resource for nanoscience and nanotechnology, is supported by the National Science Foundation and other funding agencies.
