Jong Bum Kim


Jong Bum Kim is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree on the subject of Building Information Modeling for computational urban design at Texas A&M University. Prior to this engagement, he received an urban design master degree from the University of Texas at Austin and an architectural master degree from Yonsei University, Korea. He has practiced in architectural firms in both Korea and U.S. on mixed-use, high-rise residential, and community developments. His current research focus addresses urban computing, parametric modeling, decision making, and design communication platforms for sustainable community developments.
